Prime decuplets (p+0,2,6,8,12,18,20,26,30,32) are one of the two types of densest permissible constellations of 10 primes. Maximal gaps between decuplets of this type are listed in A202281; see more comments there.

The first four gaps (after the decuplets starting at p=11, 33081664151, 83122625471, 294920291201) form an increasing sequence, with the size of each gap setting a new record. Therefore these values of p are in the sequence, as a(1), a(2), a(3), a(4). The next gap is not a record, so the respective initial prime is not in the sequence.
