Not just that but the ECU can change (just to mention some basics):
- the rate of knock advance/retard based on the frequency and type of the knock detected
- Store knock values as adaptive values and these will then apply to overall ignition advance
- Alter the overall ignition offset based on fluid temperatures

These are just the basic things.

Anyway, not to go off topic!
