Makes no difference. The computer generated calls don't use "lists", they simply run all the possible number combinations within an area code.
And since you're clearly quite the phone genius, you probably already know that number spoofing makes it easy to make the call appear local, even though it's from overseas. They simply use the same area code and (sometimes) 3 digit prefix as the number they're calling as the spoofed origination number.
