I don't fully understand the prupose of the delegation warning in this scenario, can someone enlighten me?

Hi, I feel sort of dumb at this point but I've been reading about delegation warnings and I still feel like I'm missing something here.

 

Now, this is about data in a sharepointlist

 

If I collect the data by doing this

ClearCollect(
    CollectionNames,
    Names
)

 

Powerapps will tell me I have a warning, "The rows retrieved from the datasource may not be complete".

To be honest I dont worry in this case about the rows may not being complete cause the items in the list will never really get over the 500 or 2000 limit.

 

Now, what bothers me about this scenario tho and what I don't fully understand is, if I update my collection by adding a filter like this

    ClearCollect(
        CollectionNames,
        Filter(
            Names,
            Created > DateValue("2021-01-01")
        )
    )

 

The Delegation warning will go away but would that magically give me a collection of all the items in the list created after the date even if the list would contain 10 000 item rows?

 

Or would it still be limited to 500 or 2000 and just dont collect all the items and not show the error instead?

Thanks, was kind of what I suspected.

I got confused when the warning went away but the outcome of the collection would still be the same, just with no warning.
