I started "learning" git. I am wondering whether it is safe for me to set a user name and email in git with
Code:
git config --global user.name "Example Name"
.
When layman connects to its repositories will it expose my name and email to the remote server?

It is safe,
Those settings are used for commits and other such low-level git interactions


layman clones/pulls from a publicly accessible git url for anonymous clone/git

Layman now sets a default username and email for git overlays. It was requested due to problems with an overlay that was enforcing those settings exist. But not to worry, overlays are pull only (with rare exceptions and user side)
You can easily edit those in
/etc/layman/layman.cfg:
#-----------------------------------------------------------
# Layman user info
#
#  The user name and email to use when adding new repos
#
#git_user  : layman
#git_email : layman@localhost
