Duplicated decimal coordinate values?

Hello. I hope someone can help me with what appears to be an odd problem.


In ArcMap Desktop v10.5.1 I have calculated EN coordinates for a set of sample points for field work. However, I noticed that the coordinate values all have the same decimal values regardless of where they are located. The points are not located in a line so how can they have the same decimal values? For example, two completely separate point locations some 60 metres apart have the following values: P1 is E 315722.4077 / N 5809888.1804, P2 is E 315767.4077 / N 5809843.1804. 


Please see attached image.


ALL the points have these same repeated decimal values. The field type is Double and precision is set to 6 decimal places. The data frame is correct with all project data in GDA_1994_MGA_Zone_55.


The same points calculated using DMS have unique values and are NOT duplicated at the seconds (") level. Hmmm


Thanks for any help or tips in advance!
