I think you're "reading" the diagram "wrong", although I can see why people would read it that way.

A better way of thinking about it is when the signal is below the threshold it is treated, and the graph shows you when that happens. When the text says a "portion of the signal is treated" the way I understand it it refers to the entire signal, from beginning to end (time) in the graph.
