WTF snmp scans during installation

Hi,
can some one explain why opensuse 11.2 try to scan the default gw via snmp??? And why it generates wrong packages with other mac-addresses? we have 3 scan tries with the same IP (from the fresh install) but with 3 different mac addresses. Can some one point me to the code which does this strange things?

Thank you

same with 11.3

You would have to ask the people that design the installer. Ask in the
factory mail list. But I would think it is looking for an install server,
if it is near the beginning. Later, it could be avahi, looking for
printers, etc.
