When that passage was written, only the PDF import extension was taken
into account, see

I didn't try with the driver, but according to your description it isn't
disabled on the Extension Manager; that's strange because the
extension's description.xml has

<platform value="macosx_x86"/>

but given issue 124783 it might be broken.

That one is written in Java, it should run in any platform. Anyway
I wouldn't recommend anyone to install that extension, it is
unmaintained (like most Base stuff) and broken, see:
