> According to SC 2.2.2 Pause, Stop, Hide, controls or documented means to

Working Group Resolution (LC-2866):
Thank you for your question.
Your conclusion is on the mark.
If content is not moving initially, there's no interference as envisaged by
the SC and documented in Understanding WCAG 2.0.
If the page does not permit the user to pause the movement after it has
been initiated by user-action, it is perhaps a matter that might need to be
reviewed from a functionality or usability viewpoint, but it does not fail
SC 2.2.2 or conformance requirement #5.
