Does that mean that the old TS-209 will work with a HDD larger than 2TB, which is the clearly specified upper limit for that box
No, this does not apply to TS-109/209/409 at all.

Not corect ...
TS-109 models can work with a single disk volume on a 2 TB HDD.
TS-209 models can work with two 2 TB HDD, the storage voilume size can not exceed 2 TB (so either two single disk volumes, or a RAID1 [shadowed]) - but not a RAID0 or JBOD AFAIK.
TS-409 can work with up to four 2 TB HDD in any configuration AFAIK.
