Does socat forward any information about a source?

I'm using socat in a double vpn chain instead of the middle vpn server:

OpenVPN-Client( -> socat( -> OpenVPN-Server(

I'm using it on this way:
socat TCP-LISTEN:995,fork TCP:

So data on is encrypted.

Does socat send any type of information about me on to, which can help deanonymize me?
(May be something similiar to X-Forwarded-For, X-Originating-IP or other)
