This is correct. I'm sure (as brilliant as Healy is) that he had a reason to call these matrix recordings. There's probably an article floating around that describes the technique. Unfortunately, he muddled the issue because the term is normally reserved for M-S (mid-side) encoded recordings. OTOH, there's a huge difference between a time-aligned blend, and an after the fact combination of random mic and desk recordings.
