(I'm seeing some posts hours after they were posted, so sorry if someone
else has already replied to this.)

The docs say about the 'IPRange(...) function:
True if the current host lies within the specified IP range

So 'customer' and 'customer_location' (a valid classname) are true if
any ip addresses on the current host are in range.

Without seeing the ipaddresses on the host in question, and the range
expressions, it would be hard to say why both classes are being defined.
