PeoplePickerSettings.SearchActiveDirectoryDomains not showing anything in SharePoint

I am trying to add another domain in SharePoint People Picker but before that I want to see what current setting is. So, I ran the following commands, but it is not displaying anything on screen. Is this normal? Shouldn't it show what my current People Picker settings are?

Add-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication http://MyWebApplication

    Hi @Frank Martin

    You could try this cmdlet to get the People Picker settings of the Web Application.

       -WebApplication <SPWebApplicationPipeBind>
       [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]
