Stationery -> Stationary

I’ve just received an internal company email from one of our secretaries that paradoxically states:

“The stationary cupboard has been moved. It can now be found in the corridor outside the meeting room.”

Is this an eggcorn, or just an idiot who doesn’t know the difference between stationery and stationary?
