Question DID GSYNC DAMAGE MY DISPLAY?

Hello!
I am posting for the first time in the Displays category.
Relevant PC components:
AOC G2460V, 24' 1080p\75hz- Freesync 1ms response time
Nvidia GTX 1070
I do also have another Asus 1080p Monitor (from a 3-monitor surround setup I had until 1 year ago) but 90% of the time I do not use it..(its turned off from Power button, allthough Windows in Display Options can still ''see'' it).But I think this is irrelevant.

I am experiencing a strange issue.. You all know Nvidia unlocked Gsync for all Freesync monitors.. So I installed new driver and activated the Gsync option in the Nvidia Control Panel - and turned off the Fast Sync Vsync Option that I had used for the last 2 years- and it worked (amazingly, considering that my Monitor is not one of the recommended \ doesn't theoretically fully support Gsync). Then a few days ago, I read by random chance that (I didnt know that) even Gsync increases input lag! So I decide to try and see how unbearable the screen tearing would be.. (In Bf3, Bf4 and Bf1 I constantly get over 120fps on ultra settings with this GPU). I deactivate the Gsync setting in Nvidia Control panel (the monitor quicky turns on and off a few times -like when updating gpu drivers) and leave Vsync also off and restart PC. The ''Problem'' is that in every game I test I get NO screen tearing at all!! How can this be? I know how screen tearing looks like because I have seen it years ago before I discovered Fast sync (i never wanted to use the ''normal'' vsync). The FPS shows full 100-120 fps ,so its not being capped at monitors refresh rate, but neither was it when using Gsync.. so I cant know if Gsync is still on or not. I don't perceive any input lag difference compared to before.. (maybe 75hz is the limiting factor here). DID I ''BREAK'' SOMETHING IN THE CIRCUITRY IN MY MONITOR BY USING GSYNC OPTION ON THIS ''UNSUPPORTED'' MONITOR?
Thank you for your time!

You didn't break anything.
If it works, then it is not broken.

I tend to believe the driver when it says "G-Sync is off".
so why no screen tearing when neither gsync or vsync are on? I mean I am not complaining.. 0 input lag (no sync whatsoever) AND no screen tearing at same time is everyones dream..but this isn't normally possible..especially with a 150€ monitor like mine. Thats why I ask.
