"Seeded Runner" ~ what does this mean??

This is from the marathon website:
There will be a "Seeded Runner" area at the front of the starting field. Seeded runners will be identified by their race bibs. All other runners should self-seed their starting positions according to the pace signs at the starting line.

I've never heard this term before ~ what does it mean? Are these "seeded runners" leading pace groups? Or are they just the faster runners that start up front??

I've never done a marathon before, and I'm wondering about pace groups. Do all marathons have pace leaders??
