Does wireshark account for Adjusted host files?

I have a system I am blocking specific IP addresses using the hosts file in windows, however wireshark shows the a connection being attempted to that IP address. I can't seem to see where it is resolving to.

Ex: Hosts file shows:

Ip address doesn't resolve in any browser, however wireshark will show the call being made but not where it resolves to. unless I'm missing something.
