That is correct, however it was to clarify the idea. The notes explain
why the amp is not used as is but as an amplifier and low pass filter.

The amp already limits, depending on offset vs. input signal the output
will be rectified or clipped. You don't really need to amplify, just
remove the feedback connection. If the offset is the wrong way swap the +
and - inputs. ;) This yields Vdd size pulses at the output but you need to
low-pass in software.
