No, it just means it's reachable through interface number 389.  There
is a table somewhere which associates interfance names with
descriptions or even better, the labels which you have hopefully
applied to each interface.  (Brief pause while I dig around in my
wiki and various script directories.)  If you are digging around in
your cisco, I'd try starting with something like .
which on mine returns information like:

nmpwalk -c public -On -v 1 | grep Giga | head
. = STRING: GigabitEthernet1/0/1
. = STRING: GigabitEthernet1/0/2

In your case I'd look at . to see what the
interface was.
