I am not sure what you mean – what measurements don’t match what other measurements?

What does “measure length based on buttocks” mean?

Did you mistype a number in your description above?

When you export a model to DXF, it is exported as three separate files. one contains the waterlines, one the buttocks and one the stations. I measured LOA between perpendiculars and got a different value when I measured from the buttocks (side view) than when I measured the waterlines (top view). Not only do they differ from each other (they absolutely shouldn’t) but they also don’t match the actual LOA or the actual length between perpendiculars as measured in DelftShip. I’d like to know the reason for the discrepancy.

No. No mistypes.
