Is this as Yes or a No, regarding my Intel SATA chip?

I assume "No" .... ?

This can be used for AHCI-compatible interfaces implemented inside
System-On-Chip solutions, or AHCI devices connected via localbus.

Since your SATA controller works without that option enabled, you have a
normal AHCI controller on your motherboard's southbridge. That means
the answer is "no". You don't need that option enabled.
