Can't see Honda mis stamping a frame. Given track bikes are usually ex-road bikes perhaps your bike (engine, frame or both) was once registered on the road and you'd be able to recall the Reg number from the frame VIN which is possible with trade [maybe some public] vehicle history search checks. Someone in the trade once did that for me when I had a R1 track bike, didn't know the reg and wanted to do that same as you as get a daytime MOT which I did get after applying for the V5.

Honda saying yours is an F4 when you have a RR6 frame is worrying. Is the VIN on the frame stamped into the alloy headstock and nice and clear or is it separate VIN plate held on with 2 small pins as I guess if the later it might have been removed/swapped for whatever reason in the past as those VIN plates aren't hard to remove given I removed one from an NC30 (admitedly an older vintage Honda) a few years back prior without any real issues before sending the frame to be powder coated then refitted it afterwards and you'd never know itd been removed.

You can easily tell whence frame and engine came from.

Fifth Generation (1999-2006) CBR600F frames and engines are marked PC35 while First Generation (2003-2006) CBR600RR frames and engines are marked PC37.

Serial numbers printed on the headstock can be "corrected" but the operation invariably leaves telltale marks.

If the frame number you have is printed on a piece of paper, somehow like the "ownership certificate" for MX bikes and the like they have in some Continental countries, doublecheck it against the one printed on your headstock. You wouldn't be the first and won't be the last to be given mismatching papers.
