question about /etc/route

/etc/route on SunOS 3.3

Am I right that the following entry is taken as a host entry and not
a network entry?

# route add 128.174.22 mygateway 3

produces a netstat -r -n output:

128.174.0.22 128.174.20.77 UGH

Seems that route isn't using the subnet mask (8 bit subnet on Class B) to
determine that the 128.174.22 is a separate subnet instead of a host.

A bug? Fixed in later release?
