When you delete the static entry they will get recycled but MT will continue to allocate addresses in the order it already is, so if for example you free up .254, .253, and .252 but the DHCP server is currently allocating .20. The the next IP it will allocate will be .19, it won't get back to the addresses you freed up until it runs out of addresses in the pool in the direction it's allocating (which is supposed to be highest to lowest per the RFC, but some versions of ROS are lowest to highest)
