Look at your OF device tree, it lists both the sensors and the fan

By adding some code to the thermostat module (the current code explicity
skips sensor #0. precisely because there's no fan present that could be
used to directly influence the respective temperature. The sensors are
read primarily as input into the fan control algorithm. Printing them to
sysfs is just an added benefit).

That's what I did to read out the adt7640 'local temperature' sensor - I
found the output not very helpful, and disabled that code again.
