I think you are exactly right. However, I expect that SB 737 would only have been used if Murphy came down as a penalty to increase the statute of limitations. Check out AB 435 (Brownley). The vote so far is right down party lines and the bill would increase wage gender discrimination claims to 5 years (6 for willful). I think this is a sign that regular wage and overtime claims could see an increase in statute of limitations as well. However, AS would probably veto such a bill so I wouldn't expect to see it until we get the next Democrat governor. I think AB 435 is testing the waters.
