Spurious CNAME being generated by netlify?

I have Netlify managing the DNS for my website https://tdhopper.com that is hosted on Squarespace because I have a bunch of subdomains running on Netlify.

I am not able to get https://www.tdhopper.com to work with squarespace because they say my DNS is configured incorrectly.

I have the following CNAME record set up in Netlify:

Name
www.tdhopper.com

TTL
3600 seconds

Type
CNAME

Value
ext-cust.squarespace.com

And I can see this record with dig www.tdhopper.com CNAME.

However, in the Squarespace console, they say I have 3 CNAME records. The correct one (above) as well as 54.205.240.192 and 67.207.81.229. I have no idea how squarespace sees these but dig doesn’t (or Google Admin tools).

It seems like these are probably Netlify IPs, but I don’t have them set up as CNAME records in my config at Netlify App.

Can anyone help me figure out what is going on?

Those are A records and Dig and Admin Tools see it too:

With your current configuration, I think you should move away from Netlify DNS and point individual subdomains to Netlify.
