No one stanza has that information.  The best way, IMO, to see what a UF is sending to the indexers is use btool.  On the server running the UF, run this CLI command:

C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\bin\splunk.exe btool -debug inputs list

You will need the admin credentials you defined when you installed the forwarder.  It will then spit out a list of all of its input stanzas and associated settings.
