Correct, but you are part of the delivery path to its entry to the
tree. If you were co-author, you would include "Co-developed-by" with
a Signed-off-by. (So my nit stands)

For excruciating details:

https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/process/submitting-patches.html#when-to-use-acked-by-cc-and-co-developed-by

"The Signed-off-by: tag indicates that the signer was ... in the patch’s
delivery path."

"Co-developed-by: ... is a used to give attribution to co-authors ..."
