Not sure I agree with your explanation

If the bracket is tight to the body, the pressure has to spread over the area of the bracket rather than just at the point of the tripod hole. Any angular pressure has to travel along that bracket and so the force is distributed. It's very much like a reverse lever.

Depends on the curvature of the bending. In the case being discussed the camera bottom piece most likely bent down. The L-plate stay tangent to the bottom of the camera at the point of attachement. There is no contact between the plate and the camera anywhere but at the tripod hole, no pressure spread over any other part than the attachement.

A schematic may be worth a thousand picture:

The only point of contact is the tripod thread, elsewhere the bend in the camera creates a gap between the plat and the camera - no pressure spread over
