Some Laptop suppliers such as Dell, Toshiba etc can supply Tracking software embedded in the bios which can report home to tracking company. This requires a subscription.
There is other software which can be installed on hard disk to do a similar job. (risks disappearing during re install)

If your laptop is found it can be identified by serial numbers embedded in components even if labels removed.

Some manufacturers have a system of tracking serial numbers of stolen laptops should they enter the service chain or requests for Technical Support are made.

in answer to your question NO
