Snoozing Motion Sensor Notifications

As I was working in the front of my house, I disabled the motion notifications to stop the history log filling up. I discovered that the events were still logged, just not reported. Is this how its supposed to work?

Secondly, my wife on her phone also disabled the motion notications but in her case the notifications continued, even the app said they had been supressed. My wifes phone is a Samsung Galaxy S8.
