Does the cookie opt-in widget even block cookies on decline?


I was wondering if the cookie consent widget does anything to the cookies based on the user pressing the allow or decline button.

That’s the whole point of it, right?

I looked at the cookies in the chrome console and they remained the same, no matter if I consented or not. I tried this multiple times after clearing cache and cookies and in incognito mode.
