I got confused while sending XMR. Receiving address was different than one in address book. I would really appreciate if someone explained the transaction like I’m 5yo.

I got confused while sending XMR. Receiving address was different than one in address book. I would really appreciate if someone explained the transaction like I'm 5yo.

I decided to try coinloan and sent some stacked XMR to try their interest account. It was the first time I was sending XMR from my wallet (GUI protected with trezor)
I got the deposit address, added it to my address book in GUI wallet and when I wanted to confirm the transaction on the TrezoT, the address was different.
First I checked if the address wasn't changed during copy/paste, and also confirmed all the characters.
Then I figured everything I did was correct and decided to split the deposit into 2 transactions just in case I was going to lose my coins and started with small amount.
I confirmed transaction with hestitation, but it instantly showed on coinloan as pending and was confirmed and deposited.
So everything went through without any problems, but still left me confused:
How can I be sure I'm confirming transfer to the right address?

I added a picture with some details. I still don't know if it's a bug or feature. Please enlighten me.
