Nope - believe me, your example if antialiasing filter was used and reconstruction filter was used provide always sine - don't ignore Nyquist as it works perfectly.
Use opencalc (or excel) and verify your signal - use spline or cubic line smoothing to simulate lowpass filter.

So this is why Amiga filter begin cut energy over 4.5kHz - if you sample signal with maximum DMA OCS speed - signal will be oversampled and antialiasing not present - remember - square wave have unlimited spectrum - lowpass filtering make square no longer square bu bandlimited signal thus Nyquist criteria are meet.

Just take LTSpice and simulate analog circuitry behind Paula output - you will see how integrator and remain part of filter works.
