Not sure if this is because of a cPanel update but I notice now when I create a new account the following A records are added automatically and just wondered if they are mandatory and if I should add them to the other existing accounts on my server?

CPanel 14400 IN A Txt=ip address
Webdisk 14400 IN A Txt=ip address
WHM 14400 IN A Txt=ip address
Webmail 14400 IN A Txt=ip address

Hello :)

This is by design as part of the proxy subdomains feature:

Tweak Settings - Domains - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

You can use the "/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/proxydomains" script to automatically add the entries for existing domain names:

The /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/proxydomains Script - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
Michael, so because I don't use a proxy but a dedicated server I shouldn't have to worry about these settings at all then?

The term "Proxy Subdomains" is referring to the feature that allows users to access cPanel & WHM services from standard HTTP ports, such as Port 80 and Port 443. This setting is useful if users cannot access the standard cPanel & WHM ports due to firewall restrictions.

Thank you.
