The following is the likely thing that could have happened that is making the servers network type that you are using to change from private to public:

It could have happened due to the possibility that  some computer on the network that you are on has the capability to connect to multiple different networks over the course of its life that it shares the same internet protocol range with, but then the computers are not on the same network. This scenario forces the Windows Server to look for other clues so that it can be able to identify the network to use, and that clues involve the querying the Domain Name Service servers on the network.

What the server does is that it ends up identify some other domain name server that is of a public network, and therefore leading to the problem that you are experiencing.
