I know malware can disable your AV, but is this visible in the AV’s UI or does the malware manually modify the AV program itself, changing the program’s code, etc?

So I think I have malware. ESET and other scanners haven’t found anything, however I’d like to know if the strains of malware that can disable your antivirus make it somewhat obvious, in that you can see things switched off in the AV’s settings. Does malware that does this simply switch off things that the user can see are now off without them touching said settings, or does the malware actually go in and modify the AV manually to never detect it?
