Sharepoint 365 Quick launch links and user permissions not working properly

On a Company Sharepoint 365 site I am an adminsitrator (see the screenshot for the settings that I can see).

the problemn is that I am unable to have the quick launch links hidden from people or groups who do not have permissions on the link landing page.

So if I have a quick launch link that point to page 1 and I have set page 1 to be shared only with group 1, even the member of group 2 can see the links; however when members of group 2 land on the page they see a message saying that they do not have permission to see the content. this mean that my permission are correct but why I am unable to hide quick launch lnks?

Can be that my Company is "customizing" these behaviours and even if an administrator I cannot change it?

As a note... I am totally new to SharePoint administration and the site has been created by my work company who then set me up as an admin on it

Thanks Scott that is really helpful; will audience targeting overwrite other permissions like File permission. What I mean is if I set permission from settings and group A does not have view permission, group A members still see the nav link. Assuming that audience targeting will solve my problem, for Link1 should I just use audience targeting and discard settings permission? I am not sure who superseed what if any

I hope the above make sense because I am not sure if I understood SharePoint permission in the first place :-)

All I can do is experiment. I have access to an online sharepoint but don't use it other than for housing files. You can do the same. Create yourself a test site and experiment. That is how I would attack it.

I would do the same but unfortunately is my work SHarePoint site and I know it sopund strange but I have been asked to manage it but they did not give me "full" admin access and I am in discussion for having a "dummy" user to use for testing with the different group permissions; anyway you pointed me in the right direction with your link, so thanks
