What Canvas items, if any, always or by default send notifications when they are edited?

I'm a bit confused as to why some items in Canvas have the "Notify users this [quiz/assignment/page/etc.] has changed" button when editing them and others do not. For example, editing a Discussion topic does not give that checkbox. Does this mean that editing Discussion topics never sends out a notification? Or does editing a Discussion topic always send out a notification? Is there a way to choose whether an edit to a Discussion topic sends a notification?

 

Some clarification on this checkbox would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you!
