Question about scheduled dataset refreshing

Hi,

I understand that with Power BI Pro or PPU there is a limit to the number of scheduled refreshes per day.

 

Yet, I have a report which uses direct query that I have set to refresh every few seconds and I can see it refreshing.

 

I am using a paid Pro license but the free trial of PPU is stil active.

 

If I can see the report refresh on the screen or in the power BI app every few seconds, then what does the limit to scheduled refreshes on the screen refer to?

 

Thanks,

Scheduled refreshes are for Import mode, that's something entirely different from Direct Query.
