Capturing cookies

Does Brave really capture all trackers?

I just went to the Italian newspaper site

Shields up > Brave alerts me to 7 trackers.

Shields down > I am asked to accept all cookies, or customize. Customizing implies having to accept - manually - hundreds of cookies.

Note that when you observe Shields blocking items in the panel, only top-level domains are listed here – this means that there could be several more cookies/items from sub-domains that are also being blocked, but not necessarily “counted” as blocked.

I am in Europe, supposedly protected by Brave and the GDPR. Yet I have to protect myself from hundreds of trackers, of which Brave says it only sees seven. People will not understand and ask what is the difference between 417 and 410 trackers.
