    The channel displayed will depend on which band you’re connected to. Most like your router will be dual band (2.4Ghz or 5Ghz) or tri-band (which has 3 bands 2.4Ghz, 5Ghz & a second 5Ghz). So what is connected and displayed will depend on your devices and how they connect. “inssider” app will allow you to check which channels your router is using, it’s available from :- https://www.metageek.com/support/downloads/download-inssider-win.html

    Can you quit the Fing desktop and then reboot device and then run the scan again making sure you are connected to that access point which is set on channel 13 and then check if the issue persists?
