[mrtg] MRTG uses DNS lookups to run?

I'm using MRTG 2.7.5 with Linux 5.2, kernel 2.2.7, and IP Chains 1.3.9
to query some routers on my WAN.  Every time MRTG runs I get a bunch of
out-going DNS queries (in my firewall logs) from the Linux box MRTG runs
on.  Although this is not a problem is it necessary for MRTG to do DNS
lookups for SNMP queries?  Just curious.
