This is simply wrong. There is still high pressure gas in the barrel. The gas has mass and velocity and does contribute to recoil. In most pistols this effect is small because the powder charge is much lower than the bullet mass. In small bore diameter-large case capacity bottle neck cases the effect is much more noticeable.
If a thing is worth doing, it's worth overdoing.
When you've reach complete, total, and absolute overkill -- well, you're just about there.
