And yet, at least on reload, it was possible to exceed the old listed values without using the gold consumables.

Example, the T29 (upgraded turret, 105mm) was reportedly able to reload in slightly under 10 seconds with 100% crew, rammer, and vents -- with a listed RoF of 6.
I said it wasn't possible to reach 133 1/3% crew skill (and still isn't). Of course you could exceed the old listed values in all cases where equipment or consumables were available to give a bonus to them.

I thought it was obvious we were discussing tanks, not arty.

Nope, not obvious.  I thought we were discussing all vehicles in this game and I gave arty as an example.
Like anything there will be people that swear by BIA and put it on every tank that has over 100% in the secondary skill, others will never use it.
