Description of the issue:
With Background App Refresh disabled in iPhone (General) Settings, why is it that when i go to Brave’s settings (iPhone Settings\Brave), Background App Refresh is toggled ON and greyed out, suggesting that Brave insists on keeping it ON regardless?
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to Settings\general\background app refresh, and toggle it OFF.
  2. Go back to Settings, scroll down and select Brave.
  3. Note that background app refresh is ON and greyed out.

Expected result:
If BAR is Off in General settings, one may expect that Brave’s own Settings would show as OFF, as well.
