Why would the need to apply positive exposure compensation suggest the lens is brighter than advertised? If anything, it suggests your subject is brighter than middle gray.

CORRECTION: I meant 0.7 EV, of course ! Still, I took A LOT of pics, with different subjects/background lighting and the -0.7 EV was still doing it's job !

Regardless, metering is done through the lens (TTL), so differences in transmission vs. nominal aperture are accounted for.

??? Hein ??? so what ?
