Question: Are the “subaccounts” beginning with 8 derived from 4 addresses?

I am logging in from a Ledger, but I noticed that sometimes when I create a "new account", sometimes the empty subaccounts don't appear the next time I open the wallet.

I was wondering if the addresses are hierarchically deterministic, derived from the 4-starting address, or if the subsequent 8-starting addresses are randomly generated and stored locally in the computer.

(In other words, I would like to know if I get funds to 8-starting addresses, are they safe on the Ledger?)

Thanks!
