What is the purpose of scrobbling toggles in PA settings

The last time I checked, scrobbling via last.fm scrobbler apps (simple/official) works without having to enable either of these settings. The scrobbler apps just need notification access. So what does these toggles do exactly? Does enabling them send some kind of broadcast to these apps? Or something else?

TBH I would rather have a direct last.fm scrobbling feature. As in entering last.fm credentials in Poweramp and Poweramp sending track info to last.fm via API. It's how Freezer app does 🙄. Current toggles are not so much useful, they don't affect scrobbling so far I have observed.

One of my phones (a Samsung J2 Core with Android Go 8.0) doesn't enable Notification Access, therefore i cannot use a scroblble app

Yeah that's a problem. I too, have an old Android go device too and as notification listener module is missing, I can't enable give notification access to third party apps. I tried giving bind notification listener service permission via ADB but it didn't work  :( So probably there's no way around this except using native scrobbling features.

I would support a last.fm integration inside Poweramp. And looks like last.fm already has an official API for scrobbling https://www.last.fm/api/scrobbling
