[Chimera-users] presets-interactive 3-hydrophobicity surface- those water molecules stay!

I did a simulation using Amber package and saved a snapshot into its pdb
file, and use Chimera to open it. The pdb file contains a protein-ligand
complex plus a box of about 20000 TIP3P water molecules.
When I pressed presets-interactive 3-hydrophobicity surface, there are 8
water molecules stayed close to the ligand binding site.
I am wondering how these 8 water molecules were determined? The reason I ask
is because we are trying to find a way to determine 'crystal (or say,
ordered) water molecules'.
This presets-interactive 3-hydrophobicity surface seems to perform this
function in some way.
Thank you for your help.
