Do you agree with the statement differentiating Stoicism and Buddhism in the r/stoicism FAQ?

Specifically this part:

Stoicism is apparently intended for use and Practice within the flow of normal everyday life, in which one goes about one's worldly affairs and performs one's responsibilities to society. Buddhism has more of a renunciate tradition in which practitioners spend long periods, if not all of life, in monasteries in order to perform their practices. Even 'householders' who practice Buddhism within the flow of worldly life commonly set aside periods of time to retreat into solitude in order to exercise their practices.

I mean, its not wrong per se, constant meditation withdrawal is a norm within Buddhism (at least in my experience with Vipassana). Just found irony with the statement:

One is more intellectual, the other more experiential / perceptual

Any thoughts? Just finished reading the similarities section and really enjoyed how it set them apart.
