The idea is that most people want the Timelime status item in the menu bar to be always visible. When you press Cmd+Q the main window will close, which also results in Timelime being removed from the Dock and the app switcher. Also the main menu in the menu bar is removed.
If you want to quit Timelime completely and remove the status item, right-click on the status item and choose “Quit Timelime” or quit it from the “gear" menu in the popup menu.
I hope you understand.
> 4. Now press Cmd+Q. At this point the Quit menu item is hilited, but obviously the program doesn't quit since no actual quit command is assigned to it.
Yes, this is a bit confusing. The “Quit Timelime" menu item is highlighted because it starts with a “Q”. This is default macOS behavior. If you press Cmd+W the same item is highlighted.
