I'm pretty sure this is a native 240 panel.
Either way, Aquomotion is backlight strobing. It adds a blanking interval in the backlight to improve the apparent motion handling. This is in lieu of additional frame interpolation and can be quite effective. A number of mfrs. do something similar to turn 240s into even "960s".
That said, last year's Sharp Aquomotion 240 was barely detectable on their 120Hz panels. So perhaps this year's 480 will be more noticeable and perhaps better.
There's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...
