That sounds right. The default is that Git will never touch your line
endings (going into or out of the working tree). Turning on the
"text=auto" attribute for everything will tell it to start doing so
(according to core.eol, which on Windows is CRLF).

No, it only means "do not use the autocrlf feature". If you've
separately configured text attributes, it does not disable them.
