You're correct; the telco takes the number you've sent and uses their 
own database to figure out CLID name.

If the OP is trying to get correct location information to a PSAP, he 
might have the telco set up several phone numbers with the physical 
address of each building, so that when dialing out, they see the correct 
location of the emergency call.  This would be easy enough to set up in 
the dialplan or even sip.conf.
