Or the Buddha is not conditioned by various ideas about but we are?
Right you are indeed.
The Buddha's true intention is to lead all people to enlightenment, but his followers were incapable of believing that they could become Buddhas, so he taught the lesser vehicles of voice hearer, arahant and bodhisattva as a means to develop their capacities.
"People of small wisdom delight in a small doctrine,
unable to believe that they themselves could become buddhas.
Therefore we employ expedient means,
making distinctions and preaching various goals.
But though we preach the three vehicles,
we do it merely in order to teach the bodhisattvas.”
