I read “additional content” as something that is added to the page, essentially over-the-top of the current page.

If you take a bit of content away and put something else in it’s place, that is new, but not additional. The note does say “and other nonmodal popups” so I don’t think many will read it as applying to tabs.

About the definition for “additional content”, as can be read in my other comments, it's not present and what's present doesn't fit with the SC.
