To be fair paused=off in that sense. if it renamed it to off it would still do the same thing just have a different name. It doesn't automatically re-enable itself after a set period of time for instance.

You pause the location history on the dashboard, but that doesn't mean Google can't track you.

By naming it 'pause' instead of 'off', it's probably the one thing Google are (slightly) honest about.
