No it means joining the EEA temporarily, sounds reasonable.
The UK is already in the EEA as one of the signatory nations. When the EEA was set up the EU didn’t exist as an entity, so all the nations signed individually. So the UK is a member outside the EU.

Interestingly, those who interested in such matters noted that when the UK initiated A50 to the EU, they omitted to simultaneously initiate A127 of the EEA treaty.....

Article 127

Each Contracting Party may withdraw from this Agreement provided it gives at least twelve months' notice in writing to the other Contracting Parties.
