Specifically, they can record which link someone clicks on and they can record where a user went to via cookies, which most people allow. However they cannot determine how long you stayed on someone else's site unless you have your security set lax enough to allow their toolbar to send back that data. Even then, they only get the data from the miniscule percentage that have their toolbar installed.
The above has nothing to do with what the search want to do. It has everything to do with what is technically possible for all of those users who don't have a toolbar installed.

Hence there is a technical barrier once the vast majority of people --who don't have their toolbar installed-- leave their own site.
If they used a jump link or similar they could even set a cookie showing them where you went. But they have no way of having that cookie update when you leave someone else's site.

and use this info for ranking, but is there any evidence that they actually are?
Most likely they are, and have been for years. BUT...it's always going to be just a small part of their algo, just like everything. It's one factor they will keep in mind to determine credibility and relevance, etc.
