Does site search include all website searches?

We have site search enabled in our GA. What I'm wondering is whether this captures all searches done in all search boxes on the site, or if it's just the search box in our navigation menu. How can I determine this?

GA captures search activity from the search query parameter, I assume all your search boxes use the same query parameter so all of the searches are captured the same way regardless of where the search boxes are located. Hope this helps.
