iptables localhost


I've looked at iptables and loads of entries show localhost instead of the ip-address.
But they're not local.

They're not in any of the interfaces not are they in /etc/hosts.

Which other possibilities are there?

here a bit of iptables output without -n

Code:
Chain FORWARD (policy DROP 75 packets, 3744 bytes)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination

    0     0 ACCEPT     all  --  any    any     localhost/24         anywhere            
    1    48 ACCEPT     all  --  any    any     localhost/24         anywhere            
    0     0 ACCEPT     all  --  any    any     localhost/24         anywhere            
    3   144 ACCEPT     all  --  any    any     localhost/24         anywhere            
    0     0 ACCEPT     all  --  any    any     localhost/24         anywhere            
    0     0 ACCEPT     all  --  any    any     localhost/24         anywhere
That what is labeled localhost isn't local.
If one uses -n it shows the correct 10.x.x.x addresses from our network.
I don't have a clue why it would think those addresses are localhost.

ping localhost is answered from 127.0.0.1

in /etc/hosts is only 127.0.0.1 as localhost
and 127.0.0.2 and as C2000.local
