On the RAM module there is an SPD chip which contains info about the RAM and its rated speed. If it is running according to SPD it should be running at what the RAM is rated for. Though it is possible that the BIOS has a bug and is setting it up wrong.
Technically the RAM is running at 266MHz, but it being DDR (Double Data Rate) makes it as if it was running at 533MHz. So the question is if it is running at 533MHz (actually 266MHz) or 266MHz (actually 133MHz)
