These addresses are the ones known for the host (after a DNS query).
We currently do not report the IP which is really used. It is not planned
to do so. (The original patch for theses addresses is from D. Stussy,
on news.software.nntp; maybe you could ask him if he plans to...)
Note that innfeed can use multiple connections and therefore possibly

You may want to use "bindaddress: none" in innfeed.conf
