>> I'm a bit confused about this - when I logon to the account everything looks like its in one account. However my quarterly statement gives a % breakdown by my contributions and earnings vs employer match and shows the vested amount (which is 100%). <<

If you're 100% vested in all employer contributions and it's all commingled in one account, then as far as I can see it's mostly a moot distinction. The money is all yours.

Where it can be different is if it's not 100% vested, or if the employer puts their match into a different account (i.e. when they match in company stock this can happen). But it sounds like that's not the case here.
