Yep. You have to disable Web and App Activity as well in order to kill tracking. But then you lose more than half the functionality with Google software. Thankfully for my purposes, I only need location services when using Google Maps to navigate, so I can keep WaAA off permanently as I don't use that god awful Google Assistant.
