Our data  collection policy is part of the Review Policy, which you can read at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/AMO/Policy/Reviews and every developer explicitly agrees to in order to become a developer.
For critical violations, we may block add-ons according to our Blocklisting Policy (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Blocklisting) in order to protect Firefox users.

Generally, no block is being approved without verification by a Mozilla admin reviewer.

Seems like this was probably related to this https://adguard.com/en/blog/big-star-labs-spyware/ malicious activity (via mailing-list).
Quick update, the add-ons team have requested the bug be kept closed to comments so the conversation can continue on the add-ons mailing list.
