I need some assistance removing Exchange 2010 after a Remote Move / Hybrid Migration from SBS2011 before decommissioning the server and just leaving O365 in the cloud.   I might be overthinking the situation.

Original Setup - SBS2011 / Exchange2010
New Setup - Server 2016 Standard / Office365 Business - 80 mailboxes

AD Sync is currently setup on the Server 2016 box and working just fine.   All I want to be able to do is Sync AD Users and Passwords between the 2016 Server and O365 Business.  I no longer need Hybrid Exchange setup.  User gets setup in Local AD, creates the object in AzureAD - I assign the O365 license, setup the email address and go.  Future password changes stay synced between the Mailbox and local AD.

This is the first time I'm doing a Hybrid migration - I'm used to just doing a cutover style migration - once everyone is good in O365 I follow this guide to uninstall exchange - it's worked time and time again. -

He does have another article with what appears to be my situation   but it sounds like some supported frameworks might have changed since.   Currently the SBS2011 box I have doesn't serve any function currently.

Is it safe to just uninstall exchange 2010 like I normally do following the cutover migration?
