Nope. I have FiOS and the 5 IPs. They are 5 IPs, in sequence, at a
completely arbitrary location in a /24 subnet. They're not "routed" to
anywhere. I can plug an plain old hub into the FiOS ONT and whatever
machine responds to the ARP request gets them.

I too expected they were going to be a /29 routed to an exterior
interface. I was disappointed since I could have squeezed 9 IPs out of
that.
