The best analogy I can think of would be to look at the routing table as a router that has an interface on each subnet. The route that you see for 10.0.0.0/16 has the destination as local, so in a physical router that would be like “directly connected”. It’s not exactly the same, but logically associating the subnet with the routing table is similar to putting a router interface on the subnet in a traditional network.
