Does Apple Music include FULL iTunes Match functionality, or not?

I’ve been unable to get a simple, clear conclusive/official answer to this question:

Does Apple Music truly include all of the feature set of iTunes Match?

Bonus question below.

My situation:

  1. I am a subscriber to both iTunes Match and Apple Music
  2. I’m considering upgrading to the Apple One family plan since for just a tiny bit more money over the year, I would get a lot more iCloud storage. I really don’t care about any of the other things in One.
  3. If upgrading to One, I would want to drop iTunes Match which renews end of this month.

If I were to do this, would I lose anything when iTunes Match drops, given I still have Apple Music? Wondering what I’ve been paying for all these years that I’ve had both.

From my research so far, I’m getting very confusing and often contradictory information on whether or not iTunes Match is now a part of Apple Music, if only certain specific features of iTunes match have been rolled into Apple Music, or if they are in fact totally different things (still) that address very different issues and therefore both are still needed if you are say, a musician who has a lot of “unknown” tracks in your library that will never be matched by Apple Music.
