I'm not aware that we really see any adverse heat issues with a laptop on a dock. In some cases, people may dock and use and external display and driving 2 or more external displays could work the GPU(s) harder and lead to some increased system temp, but I don't think it is an issue for most people.

The design of dock support full air vent using standard air vent built in ThinkPad. No blocks etc.
Therefore no need for additional fan even if you use 100% of CPU and 100% GPU.
