That seems to be a bug in the 700 firmware.  It will digipeat it's own 
packet if it copies it back from a digipeater and the packet still has 
an unused path component that the 700 responds to.  This was discovered 
during the AT Golden Packet event a few years ago.

Interestingly, based on this year's AT GP event, I don't believe the 
D710 has this issue.
