I do not think he was; but more on that later.

The problem here is that Tibor is using a different definition of "homage"
and "fealty" than you are; and in this case, his definitions are more
suited to the SCA's period of study. What the typical SCA approtesquire
exchanges with his/her teacher looks more like period homage than period
fealty; your mileage may vary.
