This is an invocation of the menu system, driven by the keyboard. (Also,
it's not Alt+tilde (which would be Alt+Shift+`), it's Alt+` i.e. no
Shift.) It's an alternate command, and IMO is just adding confusion to
the discussion.

Not really. If you don't want to save buffers, you just answer “No”
when prompted by ‘save-buffers-kill-emacs’, so Ctrl+X Ctrl+C is all you
need to know to exit Emacs.
