Also, wouldn't that imply that it's a global shutter, albeit only with electronic first curtain?

the global shutter technically does not require curtain at all... global shutter means that there is a schematics on die that implements simultaneus charge transfer from all sensels to light shielded storage on die itself (and such storage is individual for each sensel, it takes the space on die - that is why either DR and/or resolution typically suffer in such sensors... so you mostly find those in industrial/machine vision, scientific or video/security applications), from which it is then slowly goes to ADC (on die/off die)...so there is no jello effect
