qemu provides acpi and smbios tables via fw_cfg for many years now. The builtin tables shipped by seabios are only used as fallback for old qemu versions.
qemu is about to drop backward compatibility for old versions, machine types for versions 1.4 to 1.7 are deprecated, which turns the fallbacks into dead code.
This patch flips the default for the config options controlling the fallback smbios and acpi tables from 'Yes' to 'No'. Eventually the code will be removed altogether at some point in the future.
