These are _source_ ports.

These are _destination_ ports.

Source and destination ports are entirely different concepts. Source 
port number is just "socket ID" (randomly) selected by OS. Destination 
port is more important thing because TCP/UDP servers listen for 
incoming requests on specified destination ports.

Don't worry about NAT in this case.
