You can stop it down to f/32.

If you do, you block the effect of the apodizing element and it becomes a normal 135mm lens.

That is irrelevant because you're effectively striving to maximize DoF. Apodizing element is primarily to help towards a gaussian rendering of OOF areas, when they are to show up.

These larger apertures are for speed, rather than DoF.

It's used for both because you cannot have one w/o the other.

Shallow DoF is a consequence. Getting a 500mm f/4 has more to do with maximizing speed than to create a shallow DoF.
