Seat post size

When I bought my bike a 2008 Iron Horse Azure Sport I downloaded the specs. It says (Seat Post: EASTON EA30, 31.6MM) ,but on the side of the seatpost it says 27.2
Is there something simple I'm not understanding here.

The only way both could be correct, is if someone added a reducer shim to allow use of the popular 27.2mm post size in a frame made for 31.6mm. If the frame doesn't have a shim, then the specs are incorrect.
