Have now managed to get in touch with someone more clued-up in my
ISP's support staff and have got an answer which makes sense:

So there we have it... I have a static IP but SORBS call it dynamic
because another customer could get it if I left...

It would be nice to be able to get an IP assigned to me for life, that
I could take to a different ISP if I decided to switch...
