I see no reason that this would send anything back to Google. Google have never lied about what Chrome does - and you can turn it off.
@Pfui, if you are really worried that the binaries may differ from the source, then just compile it for yourself, or use a Linux distro that compiles it for themselves (none yet, but I doubt it will take long to appear in backports repos). Here is the source [code.google.com ]
This sounds like a very good reason to use Apache (unless the other servers come up with equivalents soon).
