Is Password Manager just piggybacking on the browser-stored passwords?

I'm installing the Norton suite that includes Password Manager for the first time. Other managers I have used have a "vault" that resides on my hard drive that I can access without being online. Norton however appears to be just extensions or add-ons to the browser that retrieves and loads passwords already stored in the browser. The browser will do that by itself.

1. Is there more to Norton's password manager o is it just another interface with the browser's password storage?

2. Can I access Norton's password manager when I'm off line?

1. Norton Password Manager does not interface with browser's built-in password storage - 
    Norton Password Manager users turn off browser's built-in password storage -

2. No, Norton Password Manage stores vault data online -
