    The description on the Unity Data Privacy Plug-in says the following:

    "If you use both Unity Ads and Analytics, the opt-out mechanism provided by Unity Ads applies to both services."

    Does this also mean that the Data Privacy Plug-in opt-out button also disables Unity Ads data collection such as unique advertising identifiers?

    No, the Data Privacy Plug-in does not affect Unity Ads data collection at all.

    If you are using Unity Ads, the data collection behavior may vary if you are using mediation or a custom GDPR solution, but in general, the first time a player sees an ad in your game, they will be given a data collection consent dialog where they can note their preference, etc. And the privacy icon, to view or change that preference, should be available in any ad that is served by Unity Ads.
