This issue has been reported by Luize:

“Not sure if it’s related to this update but I keep getting: AirPods Pro Found Moving With You notification as if the AirPods that I’m owning are not mine.”

We couldn’t replicate this problem until now, but have found similar reports on Apple’s Discussion Forums.

The notification can be also entitled AirPod Detected and inform you that:

“An AirPod has been moving with you for a while. The owner can see its location. You can play a sound to find it.”

Fact: And if you play a sound you’re baffled because it’s your own AirPods that will chime. Yes, it can happen to brand new AirPods that you purchased first hand and have been the only owner for a while now.

More: This erroneous AirPod Detected notification can occur on all Find My compatible AirPods including the Pro, Max and AirPods 3.
