Who is using /dev/urandom: Exim proper or gnutls/libgcrypt?

For my understanding, will someone be so kind to answer these
1. Does gnutls use GCRY_VERY_STRONG_RANDOM?
2. Does gnutls save the random seed file?
gcry_control (GCRYCTL_SET_RANDOM_SEED_FILE, filename);
3. Does the problem only occur for inetd invoked exims?
