I believe it uses the google engine just doesn't do any tracking etc.
I have been using it for a few years and it seems to do just fine. the only time I ever use google now is to search for images.
I switched to DuckDuckGo because I was tired of all things Google, but the search results just weren't the same and as mentioned, picture searches were a lot different. Odd in that I thought DuckDuckGo used Google, but apparently Bing.
And yeah, I don't use Google analytics on my site anymore or Google anything. I even ran a network sniffer while browsing my site making sure nothing connected to Google. The only thing I care about is Google Bot.
