In this revision of the Guidelines for reviewing low-quality posts, we can read under the sub section Comments posted as an answer

If the answer would actually be a constructive comment, consider flagging it for moderator attention.

    Yes, mods can convert answers to comments, or delete them outright if they wouldn't even add value as a comment.
