No, what that paragraph is meant to mean is that angle-brackets are a double-quote context. I.e., just as variables are interpolated in double quotes, so shall they be interpolated in angle brackets (except for the case of <$foo> which is always interpretted as a readline() on the $foo filehandle)

In fact, I don't know why the docs don't say these very words.
