unwanted keys showing up in /root/.ssh/known_hosts


I am using Sabayon 4. As installed /root/.ssh/known_hosts has keys for 84.18.151.170, and www.sabayonlinux.org,72.55.147.227. This has happened on both machines I am using Sabayon. Why would these keys be there? I did not put them there and Equo works with them commented out. Is there some other service that would require these keys?

Could they have accidentally been left there by the distributor?
