Exposure settings:

That article starts with the sentence '”Exposure” is how bright or dark a photo comes out', which is completely and utterly wrong. So, given that it starts out wrong, don't be surprised if just about everything in it is wrong.

On the origin of the Adobe exposure slider. Exposure compensation by means of processing.

Sure, but that doesn't excuse the technical author who wrote that for them getting the definition completely wrong. But then Adobe is a software company with its roots in computer reproduction, not photography, and probably self-important enough to think that their definition is the one that counts.

No it doesn’t. But if this is their understanding then it perfectly explains the exposure slider label. And perhaps also why a lot of people think exposure = lightness since this label has been adopted by many image processing softwares (assuming this was started by Adobe)

Yes, it does, though the link that Iliah posted suggests that the misunderstanding isn't deeply entrenched in the company. But, I think that the misnamed 'exposure' control on image editors is one of the things that has led people not to know what 'exposure' means. The misnaming of the 'Exposure Triangle' very likely arises from that, rather than teh other way round. When Peterson invented it, before Photoshop, he called it 'the photographic triangle' (and the third side was 'film' not 'ISO').
