If I understand the terminology correctly, Telecentricity means that the Chief Rays are parallel to the axis of the lens when hitting the sensor (also at right angles (normal) to the surface of the sensor).

Right; the chief ray (singular).
In the examples above the angles (with respect to the optical axis) are 4.84 and 3.39 degrees respectively; these values are pretty low but parallel would be 0 degrees.

Thanks for clearing up some of the recent obfuscation on this topic.

No problem. Optics can be a confusing topic.
