Sinkhole dns-wildfire

How does the dns-wildfire threat category work? I've seen a log entry, but there isn't any traffic to the sinkhole IP. The action is sinkhole and reported as generic:malicious.domain1. I have confirmed that sinkhole does work for regular threat category dns and is reported as Suspicious DNS Query (generic:malicious.domain2).

Sinkholing a DNS query does not guarantee a followup IP connection, especially if the Spyware has embedded intelligence to distinguish a true public IP vs a dummy sinkhole IP.
