I wish it were used that way, but unfortunately I usually see it used as a bludgeon on people of good will, people who DO issue an apology. It's really sad to see it used that way: "It doesn't matter if you apologized INTENT ISN'T MAGICAL!!!!ELEVEN11!"
But intentions matter a great deal in real life, and I hope people will stop with the non magical bludgeon and learn to accept a sincere* apology. And I do see this a LOT, and it's frankly pretty repulsive and why I say that I disagree with the statement. And I still do because, sadly, I never see what you are describing.
*i.e. not "I'm sorry if you're offended" but more like "I'm so sorry, I didn't mean it that way. Please accept my apology" or something along those lines.
