Of course I've seen them. I only vaguely remember what they're called,
and that they are probably going to disappear in favour of NFC (see
recent news from Google, which has stopped supporting them). However I
parsed the phrase as "(Cam and QR) code" which doesn't mean anything. I
sit corrected, but I still say it's better to aim for clarity,
especially when you're asking for help.
