    Hotspot monitoring has nothing to do with the phone - it's done by the carrier, based on the data stream. If you connect another computer to your cellular device - phone, tablet, hotspot device - they see what devices other than the one registered is doing, and count that toward your hotspot usage (and your total data usage). (It's too trivial a function to add one to look at the type of phone you're using [which is far more complex than looking at the data stream].)
    Thanks for the explanation. That makes a lot sense!
