PDAF with EM1 Mark II quick question

I am still relatively new with Mark II. So far so good. Still love EM5 Mark II and EM1 Original as well.

Quick questions for the experts. If I use BBF and in C-AF full-time, is EM1 Mark II using PDAF only? Just experimented on a very poor day outside and maybe I am imagining but tired to compare S-AF with no BBF which is I assume CDAF (maybe PDAF, hybrid in camera mode?) vs C-AF and BBF to take single shots (which maybe PDAF only mode?).

C-AF with BBF seem to deliver a little more details in the pictures and slightly better focus.

Sorry if this has been answered many times before but if you guys can enlighten me, I will be greatly appreciated.
