Mean Center (Spatial Statistics) tool xcoord and ycoord

I am using the Mean Center (Spatial Statistics) tool to calculate the mean center point for a group of seabed samples taken at different sample stations. The tool is working okay but I have found that the output xcoord and ycoord values are not always the same as when the x and y coord of the new point is calculated using the Add XY Coordinates tool - there is often a difference of several meters. The data and data frame are both set to WGS84 UTM Zone 31N and I don't understand why there is this difference. The calculated xcoord and ycoord from the Mean Center tool doesn't seem to be correct for the new point features. Can anyone explain?
