Octagon Out Of Dimensions

I've noticed the octagon center point is out. Have a typed dimension say 4.091 and the end result is 4.724. I have to go back to Smart dimension to adjust the right dimension. 

Any thoughts

I would say it's more likely to be your placement point that is out, rather than the center point of the polygon geometry.

With this short video... Showing the octagon out of dimension all around.
Is there a reset to send back to standard.

Look at your command bar -- there are two options -- measure to corner or measure to flat. You are set to measure to flat. Change it to measure to corner and I think you will get the result you expect.

I've noticed the only time the dimension is in sinc is a new documents. 

With this video in an existing document shows an out of dimension octagon.

Whenever you enter a dimension for the polygon, you are not entering the dimension for the chord. Rather, the distance from the polygons center to the midpoint of the polygons chord (or the vertex depending on which option you have checked in the command bar) So, in your case if you get your Smart Dimension tool and first click on the center point of the polygon, then click on the midpoint of the chord, you will get the distance you originally entered.
