Dash PrivateSend does a coin mixing... but afterwards you submit a transaction and broadcast it from your own IP address (assuming Dash Core wallet), right ?

So people can track you by IP address ? (both original and mixed coins)

When you have mixed coins they return back to your wallet.

So to send the mixed coins, you need to broadcast a transaction from your wallet. At this step, IP address becomes public. (except if you use a VPN or TOR)

In my understanding, you use your IP to broadcast transactions, but the Dash network doesn't relay your IP information, so it will be known only by those peers you contacted initially. But yes, even that might be a problem depending on how private you want to be. That is also a good reason for requiring MNs to be tor-reacheable. Another one is DDoS.
