Ya, to be fair, they can help if you are building free standing. I think that is what he meant, but the way he refers to it, it sounds like he is referring to the deck in video that is attached to a ledger.

He's probably not that dumb, BUT, I have met folks who adhere so rigidly to the sales manual as to abandon all common sense.

It's more fun to think he is a master of reverse physics

Don't know if you can see it but here's the ones the inspector requested I install at each corner of a 12 ft wide, 6 ft joist length upper deck. Lateral load connectors. DTTZ2 stainless with 1/2" stainless rod. No worries about missing the hanger...hangers not required. 2x2 ledger strip only. Only in coastal NC.

Good point, connecting to cantilever here would be a no-go without engineering or taking the deck joist back to the exterior wall.

Why they don't just make a larger offset bracket seems like the obvious solution... That block is ugly.
