That depends on what you mean by "moderated".  The regime described in
the article, that every single message is to be approved by a moderator,
is not implemented.  However, you can have a room where non-members are
"visitors" (i.e. can't speak).  To do that, set "Default users as
participants" to false.  The option "Make room members-only" doesn't
even let non-members enter.

The option "make room moderated" indeed does nothing.  Hiding the option
is a very sensible thing to do.
