What does the 'Show Notes History' do in the History view? I could not
see any effect when toggling this.

It controls whether or not note commits are shown in the History view.

You will need to use it on a repository with commit notes to see any differences such as JGit or EGit.

The message for EGit commit e853af612703e98af9f6e21c89a860d73b237e16 has more information about the behavior.

It shows any git-notes on objects.

Since commits are immutable in Git, you can think of git-notes as annotations to commits. For example, Gerrit annotates commits with code review information so that information is stored along with commits.
