The difference is really just as you have written. With asset based, the asset is purchased and then leased back to the company that is was purchased from (so for that company it effectively a sale and leaseback). With asset backed, they are purchasing assets that are already earning income.
(The article is really a bit over detailed (it wasn’t written by the examining team) and I cannot imagine any exam question ever expecting the distinction between the two 🙂 )
