It seems that the given iptables rule was manually created by a former administrator. With the command

iptables -L -t nat --line-numbers


you can see the number of the MASQUERADE rule. With this number you can execute

iptables -t nat -D POSTROUTING <line_number>


to remove this rule. Thereafter, the messages of outgoing connections from VMs keep their floating IPs.
