Hello Marvin and Welcome!

I think you just went too theoretical... we're talking about (as far as I
can understand) 2-10 lines of code which you wouldn't even copy-paste but
study and learn and then use what you learned. That's not a derivative work,
that's "looking at" the source, which is free as HC pointed it out.
