Do I Have to Preload Google Fonts?

I’m using the Astra theme, and it’s an option to preload Google fonts locally in the Performance part of the Settings section. A long time ago I toggled that on, but I can see through developer tools Google fonts don’t appear to be used anywhere. It may be a silly question, but if it doesn’t look like I’m using Google fonts is there a reason to preload them?
