I agree with those who advocate approaching the agent for correction of an innocent error. In my view, one of our greatest assets in this industry is our skill for balanced perspective with a keen eye toward fostering successful negotiations. The goal to be right and the goal to succeed can achieve disparate results. Knowing the difference can make or break our value to clients.
If this is a situation you don't want to involve yourself with by your contacting the MLS then you should ask your broker or office manager to get to the bottom of it (maybe it was an innocent error) and see that a correction is made.

When I meet with potential clients, I never talk about how many years I've been in the business, designations, education, or any of that. If they ask what I've accomplished to qualify me to handle their deal, I show them my closed MLS records (listings and purchases). I have this in a binder, on my iPad, and on my laptop. When I interview an agent, I ask them to show me the same information.
Experience is not measured in years - it's measured in accomplishments.
In short, HELL YES it matters and you should do something about this. It's not just a record of a sale, it's your resume'.
This information is controlled by the listing agency and very well may be the result of a simple office staff mistake.
You or your broker should be following up and getting the information corrected immediately.
