Manual block message when not blocked

In Wordfence, I am getting blocking errors from attempts to run wp-cron and Wordfence sync from my hosting server IP address. The live traffic messages say “was blocked for Manual Block by Administrator”, but the IP address is not in the blocked list and there is a button option to “Block IP”, so I know it is not manually blocked. I searched older messages and have also checked Brute Force and Rate Limiting options and they are not the reason. I checked the “How does Wordfence get my IP” and they do match. How do I find what is causing this and how to remove the block?
