Only the batteries that use a corrosive (acid) liquid electrolyte and
which generate hydrogen gas. Don't know about your battery, but that
accounts for most of 'em, doesn't it? Actually the main purpose of
the vent hose is to drain away any acid "boil-over". In that sense,
it is more accurately a "drain" rather than a vent. I doubt that a
tiny hose going below the car has a significant effect on
accumulation of hydrogen gas.

...except that getting "hot" is not the reason for the hose.
