Absolutely not. Enigmail is a Frontend/GUI for some of GnuPG's
In fact, Enigmail does not use any of the added functions that GnuPG 2.x
offers, as Enigmail is only for OpenPGP-based email encryption.
So, what John meant is, if you use Enigmail, using GnuPG 2.x won't give
you any benefits (apart from gpg-agent, which is not too useful in this
scenario, as Enigmail can cache passphrases on its own, too).
