I recently attended an interview  and had told them that I would be bring a culture of  commitment, focus, openness, respect, and courage in line with the Scrum guide , could someone please let me know if this indeed is correct or are organizations talking about something else

I would say that those five scrum values help agile organisations to develop a culture of self-management via structure and empowerment.

Yes, I'm afraid that's probably it. You've just described the CEO's job, and the hot potato of enterprise cultural change is typically passed down the line until it lands at a Scrum Master's feet.

I think the more appropriate way of stating that would be "I would bring the values of commitment, focus, openness, respect, and courage in line with the Scrum Guide that will influence the culture in positive ways."

Culture is a very wide reaching term.  Corporate Culture can include things like work/life balance, camaraderie, inclusion, pride just to name a few.  Each of those are values.  Values combined together will lend itself to a culture.
