"virtual NIC" on a teamed NIC DL580 G7

I have a couple of DL580 servers, with teamed NICs. To my surprise, they have been built with additional NICs, that appear to be virtual NICS, on the team NICs. E.g on the production team, there is an adapter device name heartbeat:production, Replication:production. These "virtual" NICs have the same MAC address as the team, but their own ip address . I am confused by these "virtual NICs", how were they created. Is this an HP technology, or is it Windows? There are screen dumps in the attachment.
