I was about to be relieved at R58 (st augustine) sector when I noticed a limited data block in warning area 158A at 25000 ft. The warning area was only active to 5000 ft and I owned 6000 ft and above. I called sealord to see if they knew who the target was and they said it was a flight (probably a B1 bomber) returning to warner-robbins. I asked the controller if he knew that I owned the airspace and he said something online that was unreadable. I asked again who and what was going on and he then began to point the aircraft out to me. I accepted the pointout. I then asked sealord what they showed the warning area active to, he said at or below 5000 ft. This seems to be happening on a more frequent bases where there is some confusion as to what airspace is active and what is not active. We are running air carrier and other aircraft through this airspace when we own it.

Title: AFTER COORD WITH MIL FAC, ZJX RADAR CTLR DETERMINES A MIL ACFT IS OPERATING OUTSIDE OF AN ACTIVE WARNING AREA.
Narrative: I WAS ABOUT TO BE RELIEVED AT R58 (ST AUGUSTINE) SECTOR WHEN I NOTICED A LIMITED DATA BLOCK IN WARNING AREA 158A AT 25000 FT. THE WARNING AREA WAS ONLY ACTIVE TO 5000 FT AND I OWNED 6000 FT AND ABOVE. I CALLED SEALORD TO SEE IF THEY KNEW WHO THE TARGET WAS AND THEY SAID IT WAS A FLT (PROBABLY A B1 BOMBER) RETURNING TO WARNER-ROBBINS. I ASKED THE CTLR IF HE KNEW THAT I OWNED THE AIRSPACE AND HE SAID SOMETHING ONLINE THAT WAS UNREADABLE. I ASKED AGAIN WHO AND WHAT WAS GOING ON AND HE THEN BEGAN TO POINT THE ACFT OUT TO ME. I ACCEPTED THE POINTOUT. I THEN ASKED SEALORD WHAT THEY SHOWED THE WARNING AREA ACTIVE TO, HE SAID AT OR BELOW 5000 FT. THIS SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING ON A MORE FREQUENT BASES WHERE THERE IS SOME CONFUSION AS TO WHAT AIRSPACE IS ACTIVE AND WHAT IS NOT ACTIVE. WE ARE RUNNING ACR AND OTHER ACFT THROUGH THIS AIRSPACE WHEN WE OWN IT.
