220.127.116.11 is an anycast address, that means that if you send to that
address, it will "cast" to "any" address that claims to be 18.104.22.168. (no,
not just anyone can do this..).
Furthermore, if an ISP notices that a significant portion of their traffic
goes to the 6in4 anycast address, they'll likely wind up giving their
customers a real ipv6 address, but meanwhile, IANA can just start providing
more 22.214.171.124 gateways.
