Sensors is reporting values found in Linux virtual file system directory:

/sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp

You can find them out yourself (even if Sensors isn’t installed) using:

$ paste <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/type) <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp) | column -s $'\t' -t | sed 's/...$/.0Β°C/'
INT3400 Thermal  20.0Β°C
pch_skylake      -47.0Β°C
SEN1             52.0Β°C
SEN2             48.0Β°C
SEN3             55.0Β°C
SEN4             58.0Β°C
B0D4             54.0Β°C
x86_pkg_temp     54.0Β°C

Notice the pch_skylake sensor has gone crazy. Whilst researching the problem I found this question and posted this answer.
