In the game Spiral Knights, are the contents of Iron Lockboxes pre-determined? Or is it determined when you open it?

I'm guessing that they are determined when they are opened, because if they would be predetermined, then the Three Rings Design Database would be overloaded with storing content for each and every one of the many unopened lockboxes out there. Instead, they just store a program which randomly selects an item from the huge list of available items, predominantly accessories.
