XF 1.2 Question about post count addition for specific forums

So if all my forums have added to a user's post count, and I take one and decide to not have it count anymore, what happens to previous and future totals?

If a user made 20 posts in that forum, do they automatically go down 20, do they go down 20 when a certain cron is ran, or do they always keep those posts and it only applies to NEW posts after the option was selected?

What happens to the counter for "Messages" across the entire community? Do they always count the total number of posts, even if they aren't being counted towards a user's total?

It requires running a query.

Not at my computer so can't post it.
Do a search though, it has been posted previously.
