Does Standard licence deployment require an internet connection?

I'm aware that in order to deploy my application (that contains features requiring a Standard licence) I need to purchase a 25 Deployment Pack, authorize it, and embed the relevant license code snippet in my application code.

However, this raises 2 questions:

  1. Is that all I need?  Is there a licence file that needs to be deployed with the application (either manually or auto-created with the Deployment Builder tool)?

  2. Does my application then 'call home' to Esri to validate that licence key?  In other words, how do Esri ensure that having purchased 25 deployment licences I do not deploy 26 installations of my application?

The application may be installed in locations that do not contain an open connection to the internet - therefore if there's a licence check performed I'll need to deal with that somehow.  The licencing and deployment documentation is very clear but doesn't expressly cover the above - especially point 2.

Many thanks for any information you can provide!
