I don't see how that can possibly be involved, but the answer is that I have no idea what it does on a multi-homed machine in terms of the outgoing interface. Probably a function of the machine's routing table or something.

There is a libcurl option, CURLOPT_INTERFACE, that apparently can control this for weird systems that need it, but I certainly don't use it. If you need to use it, you would have to pass it in via the TransportOption feature.
