As per Microsoft Documentation:

When you enable anonymous access to a Web site, you allow anonymous users (and authenticated users who have not been granted access to the site) to browse the entire Web site, including any list, library, folder within a list or library, list item, or document that inherits its permissions from the Web site. If anonymous access has been enabled by the server administrator, members of the Site name Owners SharePoint group can do the following:

  • Grant anonymous access on a site.
  • Grant anonymous access only on lists and libraries.
  • Block anonymous access on a site.
