Site Search Turned Off - Still Pulling On-Site Search Terms?

I recently went to my admin settings to adjust my query parameters, cleaning up the search terms under the Behavior > Site Search > Search Terms report. I noticed that my "Site search Tracking" is switched to "Off."


How is this possible? I was under the impression that the Search Terms report was user search queries on-site. If mine isn't activated, then what data is it pulling? I've confirmed with a third-party application that the search term data is correct. If I switch Site Search to "On," will this affect my data in any way?
