comment Taking the continuum limit of $U(N)$ gauge theories
As they say, in the $N=3$ theory you can have hypermultiplets, and each hypermultiplet has two chiral multiplets: one in a rep $R$ and one in $\bar{R}$. It is not necessary that $R$ is the adjoint. A bit below the place you mention they consider various possibilities for $R$, only one of which is the adjoint. If you say that a hypermultiplet is 'fundamental' (which I think is not a precise statement although its meaning is clear), it means that you have one chiral multiplet in the fundamental and one in the anti-fundamental.

They matter multiplets they consider in appendix C are in the fundamental, as they write in the beginning of section 3.2 (a bit before they refer to the appendix). I added the explanation of (C.6) to the answer.

Add (C.6) explanation. Remove 'I'm guessing'.
