ExoneraTor doesn't indicate that, but if a search for a certain IP
address returns no results it looks up nearby addresses.

Example: search for (.133 is TorLand1)


We did not find IP address in any of the relay or exit
lists that were published between 2014-06-09 and 2014-06-11.

The following other IP addresses of Tor relays in the same /24 network
were found in relay and/or exit lists around the time that could be
related to IP address

Now, I can't say whether users would expect that or do anything with
those "nearby addresses".  I found it possibly useful when I wrote the
service.  But I'm not at all a usability expert. ;)

All the best,
