That depends on the extension and its particulars. For example,
adblock plus has an extortion-like scheme in place and it allows
certain ads from certain companies that have paid them good money for
their service. This patch blocks those ads as well:

There's Adblock Edge which is a fork without such "features". But it

handles the Request Policy plugin; also pretty much discontinued
upstream). Having used all four, uBlock Origin is certainly the best out
of all of them.
