I noticed that the specification for AM is 30W, but when I set the modulation to AM the scale still goes from 0 to 100, So when I move the slider to 30, am I transmitting at 30W or at 30% of 30W?

The AM carrier with no modulation will be somewhere around 35% of the selected power. You should be able to see the full selected power output with modulation.
