I need help understanding the data in the 'Sitelinks searchbox' tab

I need help understanding the data in the 'Sitelinks searchbox' tab.

As you will see in the screenshot, I have over 2k valid items, but I have no idea what this even means or what to make of this data.

I have tried reading up on this but all info always leads back to creating structure data etc (which I have done). I can't find any info to explain what these items mean and what value this is to me i.e. how do i read the this report?

Also, I understand that by adding structured data etc, this does not guarantee a search box to appear in Google search results, but rather defines the type of search box that does appear, if it is there. However, surely if Google Search Console shows this 'Sitelinks searchbox' tab with all Items valid, my site should appear with a search box in Google search?

In summary I am looking for clarity on:
1. What info is in the 'Sitelinks searchbox' tab and how is it of value i.e. what do these Valid items mean.
2. Why if all these items are valid, do I still not see a search box in Google Search?

Thanks for your time
