Probably a stupid question

Not so much

but if using an on camera speedlight for indoor group photos under fluorescent lights, there is no need to use the anti-flicker function?

If ambient is part of the exposure, yes.  If you're killing the ambient entirely, no.

Having said all of that, I don't think there is a downside to turning the flicker detection / avoidance on.
