this is, as I think was said earlier, normal practice.
Sometimes you accept a /31 from your "provider" or "peer", sometimes
they accept yours...
sometimes this is because of seasons/reasons/etc, sometimes because
it's how folk denote who's paying for the link in between.

Those ips are not useful as a signal, which I think was also said
previously in this thread.
