Actually, you are reading it wrong. Don't know where from you get the
conclusion  that "in screen/web mode the program generates javascript".

"The possibility to create  PDF forms with embedded JavaScript scripts"
means that's it possible to _intentionally_ create JavaScript script and
_intentionally_ embed them in PDF form elements such as text fields,
e.g. to validate or calculate their value. That's it. You could also
define a JavaScript script to be executed on opening your PDF form in
Acrobat reader.
