What suggests to you that they would necessarily compound?

"Try it and see", I think would be a flippant remark that you've tossed around here in this very thread. So try it and see.
Yes, the % ends up the same but the numbers those %'s represent is increased.
If you gained 4% on 100 each year for 3 years in a row, you would end up with 312, that's still only 4% but you have gained 12 you shouldn't have.

Which is exactly what happens when you try to answer the simple question of who scored more points in the 90's with Adjusted Stat totals.
