It's somewhere in-between. What you get from strings is not what's on the outside of the binary, but what's on the inside. Using it certainly *could* be part of a reverse-engineering effort. Whether it violates the EULA would depend on the exact terms of the EULA - if it says "reverse engineering" then you could argue intent; if it specifically says you agree not to look at the executable code, then you'd have a harder argument.
