Actually, wiping data and doing a factory reset are the exact same things. Cache and dalvik are in data as well

The s3 is the same way.

If it did wipe data/media, all your ROM zips, photos, and twrp backups would get wiped
Yeah, that's what the factory reset is suppose to do. But there is a separate option in twrp that enables complete wiping of the entire internal memory, including media, similar to what happens when you unlock. That's what I think the post author was talking about, but I could be wrong.
