Google Chrome: Can my organization access my computer if I am signed in?

I am signed into Google Chrome on my personally-owned Mac with a G Suite/Google Workspace account managed by my organization. I was recently looking around in Google Chrome and found this message under chrome://management:

I am wondering what "Activity on this device may also be managed outside of Chrome" means. I don’t want my organization to be able to access anything on my device that I do outside of my work Chrome profile. So:

  1. Can my organization access files on my device?
  2. Can my organization change settings on my device?
  3. Can my organization lock, erase, or geolocate my device?

I am also signed into the Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drive, etc. apps on my iPhone. Does this allow my organization to do any of the above?
