I'm not familiar with the idea that you mention, but am reminded of the teaching about the three gateways to Nibbana. Here penetration of impermanence leads to the signless liberation, penetration of dukkha to the desireless liberation, and penetration of anatta to the emptiness liberation.
Maybe it is related to that? how someone "knows" is how they teach?
so if someone has liberation through Impermanence they teach the signless path, so if someone has liberation through Dukkha they teach the desireless path, so if someone has liberation through anatta they teach the emptyness path? which in a way coresponds to what was said at the time! which was mainly about teachers of Dukkha tending to emphasise Metta!
but Dhamma has many flavours but only one taste!

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.John Stuart Mill
