Best answer

Same-type attack bonus, commonly abbreviated as STAB, is a 50% boost to the power of an attack when the attack is the same type as one of the types of the Pokémon using the attack. This results in a 50% increase in damage (100% if the Pokémon has the Adaptability Ability.)

Same-type attack bonus does not apply to moves that do a set amount of damage nor ones that do not use the normal damage formula, such as Dragon Rage and Seismic Toss.

No worries.
Like grass Knot, right?
Grass Knot gets STAB, because the damage is not set; it can also be powered up by moves like Swords Dance or Calm Mind.
