No, that would look for an exact mask...
10.10.0.0/16 says "anything in this range" as your first criteria. The le
30 part says that the mask on whatever route you are handed must be 30 bits
255.255.0.0 (/16) that you started with, all the way to 255.255.252.0 (/30)
that is your ending criteria.

Subject: IP Prefix-List issue
I have recently read one very good posting on prefix-list in the groupstudy
and thought I now understand it very well but look like I still have some
confusions. Can someone help me out here.
For the prefix list "ip prefix-list permit 10.10.0.0/16 ge 30 le 30" I think
it will match the first 16 bits and will use a mask of 255.255.255.252. If
this is correct, will this permit 10.10.0.0 and 10.10.0.4 or only
10.10.0.4as the mask seems to limit to match the 30th bit.
