What you listed is the ability of folk who have or learn to have perfect pitch and is totally doable through the course offered.

Apparently you haven't experienced his Perfect Pitch course because your definition of "seem to be" is incorrect.

David Lucas Burge's courses seem to be based on memorizing specific pitches one at a time. Even if that worked, it isn't absolute pitch. People with absolute pitch can:

Identify by name individual pitches (e.g. F♯, A, G, C) played on various instruments.
Name the key of a given piece of tonal music.
Reproduce a piece of tonal music in the correct key days after hearing it.[citation needed]
Identify and name all the tones of a given chord or other tonal mass.
Accurately sing a named pitch.
Name the pitches of common everyday sounds such as car horns and alarms.
Name the frequency of a pitch (e.g. that G♯4 is 415Hz) after hearing it.

all without referring to a reference tone, given or memorized.

This is what children with absolute pitch can do:

If anyone learned to do this as an adult, post a similar video.
