With a 10 uH inductor the converter will probably just hiccup instead of producing a stable output. You'll get poor regulation and low efficiency.
It was you misconception that confused me. I perfectly understand how you arrived at it. It is still not correct to call it a Buck controller, technically. marketing you can call it anything you want
If you say so. But I won't tell the boards that it works on, Don't want them to get a swollen ego.
