DNS Settings and Parental Control - Billion 8800NL

Just decided to change my DNS settings from Google as my naetwork monitor was seeing upload to Google (very small amounts) supposedly from Firefox although there wasn't a Firefox process running
This isn't why I am posting
From the web interface I saw this
This wasn't what I expected but I set it anyway
Does this mean that I have, in effect, enabled Plusnet Safeguard at the default settings

But if you want to uuse the ones in the box, you will need to click the button above, otherwise you are using the Parental Provider ones at the moment.

Not true
Clicking apply replaced the Google ones in the box with the OpenDNS ones
