[CentOS] what does "not found" mean in a DHCPRELEASE context?

I have a CentOS 4.6 server running dhcpd. One of my client devices (a
Panasonic KX-HCM280A camera) is trying to get a lease from that
server. I can see the device accept a lease (it is a reservation),
however it always releases the reservation after about 25 seconds: 

Jul 10 10:30:49 stargate dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0
Jul 10 10:30:49 stargate dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 172.31.14.13 to 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0
Jul 10 10:30:49 stargate dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 172.31.14.13 (172.31.0.1) from 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0
Jul 10 10:30:49 stargate dhcpd: DHCPACK on 172.31.14.13 to 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0
Jul 10 10:31:16 stargate dhcpd: DHCPRELEASE of 172.31.14.13 from 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0 (not found)

If I remove the reservation and reset the camera, it does the same
thing with a dynamic lease; however in that case the message is 

Jul 3 09:48:05 stargate dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0
Jul 3 09:48:06 stargate dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 172.31.9.91 to 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0
Jul 3 09:48:06 stargate dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 172.31.9.91 (172.31.0.1) from 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0
Jul 3 09:48:06 stargate dhcpd: DHCPACK on 172.31.9.91 to 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0
Jul 3 09:48:19 stargate dhcpd: DHCPRELEASE of 172.31.9.91 from 00:80:f0:56:46:30 via eth0 (found)

...ie "(found)" instead of "(not found)".

I should mention that I have several other cameras of the same type
which are working, so this is most assuredly a problem with the
camera itself, but I was still wondering: 

Does anyone know what dhcpd (or the device) is trying to tell me with this message?
