As severuscold said, they track your IP and probably the user-agent too, like in 99% of websites.
DDG doesn't track you but it can't modify the behaviour of other websites.
If you really don't want to be tracked for normal browsing you could use Tor.
Hope this helps.

Yup, I wonder if forwarding the request through a VPN would help with the IP part.

Also, couldn't DDG modify the request in flight by overwriting the youtube video url with a URL that hits them first? Then they can fiddle with the request and forward an anonymized version on to youtube.

Hmmm....
