Rain Bird ESP-ME Zones -what are zones??

I have a WIFI Rain Bird ESP-ME controller. I have read the manual and programmed the unit to water the front lawn for 10 mins Wed/Fri/Sun at three different times throughout the day.

The problem I am having is somehow 4 zones are showing up on my WIFI app for that program saying all 4 zones are being watered 10 mins 3 times a day. I know Zone 1 is the front lawn but I have no idea why Zone 2-3 have been activated for the same run times. I didn't set it up that way and I can not find anything on the Rain Bird site or manual that talks about ZONES.

Can anyone explain what a Zone is verse a Station? I know the programs are completely different and have nothing to do with the Zones so this is confusing me.

Thank you for any assistance!

Zone = Station
Same thing
Re-check your programming if the watering isn't happening as per your instructions
