Server 2016 shows as 2012

Sorry if this has been covered, I did search but didn't find it.  I have a number of 2016 servers but they are all showing as server 2012 in the portal. 
 
I should mention that these servers were 2012 but they were wiped (or a new VM created) and reloaded with 2016 but kept the same name.  Because they were wiped Webroot was reloaded once they were up and running, the old server is showing in the deactivated group as you would expect.
 
It doesn't appear to be causing any problems as far as I can tell, mostly just to my OCD!

Support for Server 2016 is on its way.  I'd expect this to be ready by late summer, maybe a bit earlier.

Oops :mansurprised:Apologies for triggering your OCD, I'd be the same way.
Yup, that would do it!
 
Thanks for the answer, I'll try to be patient.  Not a strong point of mine.
