Does this mean that in Darknet mode the peers are not swapped?

OK, I can see how the constant swapping may give a malicious member 
the opportunity to build a topology of the network that would lead to 
IP addresses of nodes owned by real people.  Correct?
Given that this would take quite a bit of effort and time, 
is there the possibility of putting in the network some decoy nodes
(honey-pots) that could lead to the violators?

Is it because of differences in routing algorithms?
If I had a P2P with only 3 nodes that I own, then I would not have any 
If I have a darknet, is it through some trust that security can be achieved?
What makes darknet so much more secure than opennet?

Which was?
