Yes, they will need to puff up and posture. But the point is to not accept or decline their demand. Simply acknowledge it, and make your position known. Don't draw lines or make demands/ultimatums. There is a burden they must bear if they decide to terminate your employment. Don't give a them a reason.

As for replacing you... It takes a long time for a new person to come in, learn the business, read all the code, and understand all the ins, outs, and nuances.

10 months now since I left my previous employer: they're asking for help. I've said I may be interested, and welcomed them to send their contractor-employment-policies and an offer. If I decide to abide by their policies, then I'll help dig them out of their hole. You can imagine the size of hole created when an original member of small team leaves.

It will go well, whichever way it goes.
