All Triceps Exercises Are Pushing?

#1

when they say that triceps is a push muscles , does that mean all triceps exercises are consider pushing exercises? or am i just overthinking this

#2

Yes

Yes. Why does it matter?

#3

Technically the triceps will be involved in some pulling movements like chins because the long head is attached to the scapular but I would still count it as a pushing muscle.
