If the "select all audio" option is checked, and you try to perform some
action which expects some audio to be selected, then if either no tracks
are selected or no time range is selected, then all the audio in the
project is selected - that is, all the tracks are selected and a time range
is selected which covers all of the audio in the project.

used to selecting my own audio, except in cases where I want to do
things to entire files.

Actually, if no audio is explicitly selected, Audacity will select
all the audio on the selected tracks. Obviously, if no tracks are
selected, their audio won't be either.
