36040 is a customer of HE.net. So, HE.net is sending them a full table or some subset (including their peers and customers), as expected.
In turn, HE.net will advertise to *you*, their customer routes (including 36040, note the _6939_36040 path there), being learned via HE.net

Just saying, that if you depeer 36040, or add communities on a bilateral session to them, you’ll need to do the same if peering with HE.net or a customer of HE.net, as 36040 will learn your prefixes from 6939 too.
