The 5 hole screen inside the adapter performs the same function as the screw would in a regular Mya autoseal adapter.
So yes, you do have an autoseal hose adapter there but it has to be used with the purge stem and the ball is not built into it. The description on the webpage was describing a regular Mya autoseal adapter. Just be careful not to lose the ball when switching out the adapter for the purge valve cap.
Sry for being not so technical..but what's the difference between the "purge valve stem" and the "stem port".... Im saying this because of this paragraph u wrote: "That one is made to screw on to the purge valve stem instead of into the stem port like the ones you will typically find pictured on websites."
