Does changing a user's groups in SAML/LDAP/etc affect their Looker user?

Yes. Each time a user logs in with SAML/LDAP/OpenID, their role gets reconstructed based on the SAML/LDAP/OpenID groups they are in.

So, if you have group to role mapping set up in Looker, then you can change Looker permissions solely by editing the user's groups in the external authentication system.
