You are correct. Minutes should contain mainly a record of what was done, not what was said. Those comments that you referred to do not belong in the minutes.

Thank you for confirming my instincts, Richard.  Can you advise where this info is to be found in Rogers?

Here is the citation from Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised:

“The official record of the proceedings of a deliberative assembly is usually called the minutes, or sometimes—particularly in legislative bodies—the journal. In an ordinary society, the minutes should contain mainly a record of what was done at the meeting, not what was said by the members. The minutes should never reflect the secretary's opinion, favorable or otherwise, on anything said or done.” (RONR, 11th ed., pg. 468)
