I believe sync should double check the Wallet Address it is about to report against the CLIENT_WALLET_KEY Private Key that is in the .env file, and if they don’t match then it should not report that Wallet Address as good. It should report than an error is likely in the CLI.dev.env private key in CLIENT_WALLET_KEY.
The good news is that when I have everything configured properly and have not made any mistakes,
the short sync (without --nostop) takes only 15 seconds to execute.
The long sync with --nostop done after a reset takes at least 90 minutes or more on my laptop.
