Thats exactly it. As you can see at https://www-static.ripe.net/dynamic/table-of-transfers/inter-rir/incoming-ipv4.json <https://www-static.ripe.net/dynamic/table-of-transfers/inter-rir/incoming-ipv4.json>  the adresses where transferred from arin to ripe some time ago (last november):
{"transferred_blocks":"","date":"20/11/2018","transferType":"POLICY","from_rir":"ARIN","to_organisation":"Contabo GmbH"},

I do not know onionoo, but but my local whois from a debian machine also stil probes the arin database and times out.
You could contact contabo for that, maybe they are interested in correcting this?
