I believe the request is about filling SMBIOS Table Type 1 – System Information. 


Fields like Manufacturer, Product Name, Version, Serial Number, UUID, SKU Number, Family….


Some fields are unique per platform / system like Serial Number, UUID.

In the end, I pose the question why a serial number must be exported to
the OS in the first place - this looks like a potential privacy issue to
me, while doing nothing for servicing the part (if it's sent back, read
the bar code).


There I also agree. I don't like electronically readable serial numbers in general on computers.
