Isn’t the colorwheel used as an example missing saturation?
"If you imagine a line segment drawn from the center of the color wheel to the perimeter, the saturation is a point on that line segment. "
There is no difference from the center to te perimeter in the circle given in the example


Confused me, too.

If anything, the colours look slightly more vivid in the centre, but only if I squint and then I’m probably imagining it. Hard to pick out any real difference from the edge to the centre.
