No, this "paradox" is also a case of insufficient context.

Within the limited context of the linguistic system it appears
paradoxical, but within a larger context, it is quite obvious that the
symbols in that statement are part of a linguistic system that permits
such constructions but has no correspondingly paradoxical referents in
the larger "reality".

Shortcut: In the bigger picture, all the pieces fit.
