Of course their commented out. Those are the default settings
hard coded in the ezjail-admin script.

You have no need to ever change those. Leave the conf file alone. 
Messing with it will only cause you problems.

And I suggest you leave that dinosaur ezjail to it death and move on to 
its replacement, qjail. Which is a complete rewrite of ezjail, fixing 
all of its long time bugs and adding many new features.
