I believe you're reading into that too much - they're not squatting on
anything in 123/8, they're just using "123.123.123" as example first
octets to demonstrate the concept of changing the last octet.  IE, their
"standard" DNS servers always live at x.y.z.12 and their "opt-out" DNS
servers for the same customers live at x.y.z.14.

I suspect that the example is confusing enough that plenty of customers
are making the same mistake you did in reading it, and entering
"123.123.123.14", but I don't believe they're actually USING those IPs,
as it is (if not clearly enough) labeled as "Example".
