It has no impact on SharePoint on-premise.

It means you cannot run the workflow Starting November 1st.

Starting August 1st, 2020, SharePoint 2010 workflows will be turned off for newly created tenants.

Starting November 1st, 2020, Microsoft will begin to remove the ability to run or create SharePoint 2010 workflows from existing tenants.

I think you will not be able to run or create SharePoint 2010 workflows from existing tenants.

Note below points mentioned in the same article:

  • Starting August 1st, 2020, SharePoint 2010 workflows will be turned off for newly created tenants.
  • Starting November 1st, 2020, Microsoft will begin to remove the ability to run or create SharePoint 2010 workflows from existing tenants.

Also, if you want to postpone the retirement of the SP 2010 Workflow engine to a more reasonable date then you can vote at: Postopone Designer 2010 Workflow Engine Retirement

I believe the SharePoint 2010 workflows will still run on SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019 on-premises environments.

The turning off announcement is for SharePoint 2010 workflow engine on Microsoft 365.

Moreover, Microsoft can't remove a module from an on-premises SharePoint without the customer's consent. It can remove the module from future versions. It can also stop the support for that module though.
