The smolt developers would be the ones to reply this. 

AFAIS (I banned smolt from my installations), it transmits
a machine-id, several HW details (CPU brand, type, peripherials,
bogomips) and OS details via http.

i.e. they have the IP, they have a "machine-id", and they have
information which is not publicly available elsewhere.
