Entity-manager doesn't detect sensors, it detects removable components 
then expects certain sensors. For our baseboard here: 
at the bottom of the file there is a dbus-probe for an 
xyz.openbmc_project.FruDevice interface with some specific properties. 
If those match, then entity-manager through sysfs can add some sensors 

You could also use device tree if you wanted, the export just wouldn't 
succeed. But you would need a json file with the sensors bus and address 
for dbus-sensors to work.
