Yes, as other MVP has stated, Auditing and NTFS permission are individual
and will not affect each other.

Each object has a set of security information, or security descriptor,
attached to it. Part of the security descriptor specifies the groups or
users that can access an object, and the types of access (permissions)
granted to those groups or users. This part of the security descriptor is
known as a discretionary access control list (DACL)

In addition to containing permissions information, however, a security
descriptor for an object also contains auditing information. This auditing
information is known as a system access control list (SACL)

Please refer to the following article to get more details.
