System configuration in install process

I am halfway through a (re-)install process, checking and editing the file /mnt/etc/rc.conf

I find the following lines (about line 70) in the default file:

# Routes to start at boot-up (in this order)
# Declare each route then list in ROUTES
#     - prefix an entry in ROUTES with a ! to disable it
gateway="default gw"

Two questions: 

(1)  Are the two lines necessary?  The line that begins "gateway" defines an item, and the next line says to ignore that item.

(2)  Is this default file asssuming fixed IP addresses?  (Not a dhcp connection.)

Re: System configuration in install process

it is just there as an example, as you noted it is ignored in the next line, so is just like if they were commented out. And yes it is assuming a static IP address.
