Do you mean the loopback adaptor? If so, why is this an issue, traffic for that interface never leaves the machine so can't be confused with similar traffic elsewhere?

Regardless of that, the place for npcap issues is over at the npcap site:

I didn't see an easy way to ask a question there. I tried emailing Fyodor. This is installed at a school, and the computers end up overlapping each other in the console I use to manage the computers. Winpcap doesn't do this.

You could opt to not install the loopback adaptor when installing npcap, then you have the same as WinPcap.

There appear to be two places to raise issues with npcap, as detailed on the npcap page I linked, the nmap dev mailing list or the npcap issue tracker.
