Skype fixed supernodes list?

Included with the recently published sample code for Skype encrtyption,
there's also a list of Skype server IPs:
http://cryptolib.com/ciphers/skype/skype_servers.txt
It reads "Fixed skype supernodes (from skype.exe v4.2.0.169), use
obfuscated RC4".
Does this mean that those IP addresses are hardcoded in the Skype binary
as defaults/initial values? That would be a bit wiered since some of
those addresses belong to universities, most of them in Europe.
Or is this just a snapshot of a snapshot of a dynamic list of supernode
IPs which is not hard-coded in the binary?
