What I said was that the real with interval with + is not a group.

But ax + by is NOT always in the unit interval, so accordingly f(ax +
by) need not be in the tree.

But for a mapping to be linear on the unit interval requires that for
any x and y in the unit interval and any a and b in the field of scalars
ax+by also be in the interval. Otherwise the interval is not a linear
space at all and there cannot be any linear mappings from it to anything.
Linear mappings only operate on linear spaces (vector spaces) and only
have linear spaces (vector spaces) as their image and codomains.
Thus WM is WRONG

Only inside that wild weird world of WMytheology, where the definition
of "linear map" means only what WM wants them to mean, and may change
from moment to moment.
Outside of Wolkenmuekenheim, there are bijections between the unit
interval in binary and the set of paths of a cibt, but such bijections
are definitely not linear, at least anywhere outside of
