It's not putting anything into the APRS-IS at all.   The configuration 
dialog for APRS  in Echolink looks like this:

Note that there is absolutely no provision for specifying an APRS-IS 
server address or login.   The APRS support is only RF-based.  

The only Internet activity EchoLink does is phone home to it's own 
indexing severs to report change of status of the nodes.   The current 
status and nodes-online list is here:

[EchoLink is a peer-to-peer protocol, but in a manner similar to Bit 
Torrrent or Skype, DOES use centralized servers to broker the initial 
connection(s).
