Idle stepper motor merely regulates idle speed (increasing when the engine is cold) and under different accessory loads such as A/C and P/S and alternator (headlamps on etc.), selection of a gear from neutral/park (if automatic) and possibly the return to idle from above idle engine speeds to prevent stalling from the engine speed dropping too quickly in the absence of a damper.

No, it doesn't adversely affect fuel economy.
