Actually, the strongest vortices occur when a craft is heavy, clean, and
slow. iow, on takeoff rather than landing.

He certainly could be!

Slow is relative to full speed, not necessarily on the edge of a stall,
ala PP check ride "slow flight".

Think takeoffs with little or no flaps.

Just how long do you think they keep the gear and flaps down?

Long enough to take off and establish positive rate of climb. After that,
you're not going to be keeping up with them anyway.
