Changing the thermistor setting in firmware suggested by the E3D install instructions is different than PID tuning. It's telling the firmware what type of thermistor is being used whereas PID tuning is training the firmware to be able to level out heating cycles to keep the temperatures as constant as possible.

Since we cannot modify the AnyCubic firmware easily, I used a standalone sensor inserted down the throat of the hotend connected to an external tester to check the accuracy after I had run PID tuning. The results were sufficiently close that I trust the Anycubic displayed temp to be within 1 degree of actual across the range of temperatures that I use.
