Since WhatsApp is executable code on your Android phone, it can access
information about your device directly. This includes accessing your
"real" IP address through local network information APIs.

Orbot was not designed to protect apps on your phone from accessing the
IP address of your device.

An app like Signal or Telegram, which both have open source clients, are
much more likely candidates to use as apps that don't lookup/track your
local IP address.
