I don't understand your question... what doesn't 'match'?

doveconf -n output shows the settings that the active/running version of
dovecot is using. If they don't match what is in your dovecot.conf file
then most likely you have more than one and are looking at/editing the
wrong file. This is one of the purposes of doveconf -n - to confirm that
what you *think* you are using is indeed what you *are* using.
