No, it does not.  The above lines are not in all.lst that is a part of
the Openwall wordlists collection:

$ ls -l all.gz
-rw-------    1 ftp      ftp      12100552 Oct  9  2003 all.gz
$ zfgrep AADLAND all.gz 
$ zfgrep -i AADLAND all.gz 

As you can see, "1 AADLAND" is not there; instead, there is "aadland" -
in lower case and with no numeric prefix.  The same holds true for the
newer revision included in JtR Pro:

host!user:/usr/share/john$ ls -l all.lst 
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root     44868893 May 27 04:49 all.lst
host!user:/usr/share/john$ fgrep AADLAND all.lst 
host!user:/usr/share/john$ fgrep -i AADLAND all.lst

No, you just need to find out what you did wrong with your download.
Clearly, you are not looking at an all.lst file that I've ever released.
