I started writing a comment and then found it got too long.
I'll bow and take blame for it going somewhat unsaid and ambiguous, but I (subconsciously) assumed that most of the ongoing process is covered by a norms, but let's put some words on the specific details.
There's no defined process specifically for the community check in. Normal users are able, allowed, and encouraged to raise discussions to try to solve issues, and the community check-in tries to help that mostly by getting things identified, but also tries to identify things which don't translate into full discussions. Either it's highlighting something positive, something that's just informative to keep in the back of our minds, or something intangible. But if anyone has a good idea for how to start a discussion regarding one of the things raised they should do so. The wording in the check-in post is trying to get those started rather than (too much) effort being misplaced in the respective comment threads.
And at least in my experience, getting things voiced so it can rattle in someone else's brain for them to start the discussion can be of great use. Maybe they have an idea, the frame or perspective to start the discussion or suggestion that will bear fruit.
And I'd like to cover another point which spring to mind here regarding the use of "we" and moderation team. I'll fully acknowledge it being ambiguous, at least for this case it is intended to be inclusive, meaning we the community. Moderators wear many hats, and the relevant here is Community Leader, but that hat is not exclusive to us. Taking part of meta, and especially starting (constructively and in my preference neutrally) discussions is wearing that hat.
