is that statement true or a mistaken assumption?

It is 100% mistaken. I've added comments to that GitHub issue pointing out that Wireshark uses WinPcap/Npcap APIs to do remote capture on Windows (those are libpcap APIs, so the same code does remote capture on UN*Xes if built with a libpcap that supports remote capture).
