If I use loopback processing on the TS OU then user settings would apply,
correct?

GP applies in the following order:  Local policy, Site, Domain, OU (in order
of OU nesting)

So, if you have settings lower in the hierarchy, they overwrite ones above
(unless you Block Inheritance or set the No Override options)

Now, these overwrites are on a setting by setting basis, depending on what
settings are applied.

Therefore, you are correct, the settings just apply to the computer, unless
you use loopback processing, in which case those Group Policy settings CAN
apply to the users, but only when they log into the Terminal Server.

Did that help make it clear as mud?  :)

Group Policy clarification please. If I have a default and also have a
Terminal Server OU with its own group policy, do changes under the User
Configuration apply if only the terminal server is under that OU?

Example...
 
OU=Terminal Server
Object=Citrix Server
 
There are no users under the Terminal Server OU. Does the GPO linked to the
Terminal Server OU affect computer configuration only?
