What properties suggest that they'd compound at all?

To address your other common plaints:

Regarding the rounding "error", it's just because hockey-reference chooses to round the results on the website. If they didn't round, you'd probably be complaining about "how can Jaromir Jagr have 39.6 goals in a season? It's impossible."

Regarding the other adjustments that they make in their calculations - it doesn't mean that they're necessarily worse adjustments, just different.
