No, the company does not have access to your iCloud account. Remove the phone.

Removing phone from iCloud account should be one of the steps they tell you to do before your sell a device.
If you have different emails for plain iCloud and for purchases use - like some of us old timers before you could really do both with one - you need to go into both and remove the devices
