I’m one of the maintainers of Notes. We provided an answer to this here: https://github.com/nuttyartist/notes/discussions/530

Basically, the reason for the external connection is to check for new versions. This can be disabled inside the app itself, or by building from source with a specific CMake option.

We will definitely take your feedback into account, and make sure we don’t unnecessarily contact external servers without the user’s knowledge. However, I personally feel like checking for updates is an exception to this: an application which has the ability to check for updates, will of course contact external servers.

If you have further questions or feedback, feel free to post it in the GitHub discussion above.
