When this option is checked this means everything like RDP, FTP, SSH, Ping, literally everything so your LAN>WAN and WAN>LAN firewall rules are now irrelevant correct?

So if I SSH into a a box remotely my IP address will be that of the VPN IP, not my WAN IP or remote desktop same thing it will show my VPN IP

What that means is anything that does not match any static route will go through the VPN. Internet traffic in general falls into the 0.0.0.0/0, however if you have static routes with other destination(s) they will not route through this VPN.

If you have a WAN to LAN for ssh, that traffic is not affected by this because the traffic is initiated from WAN to LAN. However if you initiate traffic from LAN to Internet, that traffic will route through the VPN.

This setting is mainly used to centralize point of egress for internet traffic.
