Description (partial)

Nexus 7000 may punt traffic to CPU; so that the traffic may experience random delay or drop.

N7k which in turn  trigger to delete  ARP entry  due to expiry. As a result   the route delete notification is 
sent to URIB from the process. However there is still traffic coming to given IP address as a result  the next packet that hit glean resulting in triggering ARP and  hope ARP is learnt from the host this time. 

Clear ip route <host>.
