The stopwatch does not add keyframes. It is a toggle that controls whether a property can be keyframed or not.

When the stopwatch is off, any adjustments to the value of the property will affect it for the entire duration of the layer. When the stopwatch is on, any adjustments to the value of the property will affect only the value at the current time indicator, creating/modifying keyframes as necessary.

There are separate keyframe navigation controls in the timeline which allow you to create a keyframe, or jump to the previous or next keyframes.

See here for more on keyframing specifically:

Since you're new to Ae, I'd recommend the following link, in which former After Effects product manager Todd Kopriva pulled together some important introductory materials:

I think the Andrew Devis After Effects Basics series and the Video Copilot Basic Training and are particularly good starts.
