I'm sorry you're going crazy.

Anyone can move sliders around in PP to push accurately-displayed colors outside the sRGB gamut. Garish saturation, HDR.... It proves strictly nothing.

Look at how much you miss when you use sRGB and clip away TONS and TONS of information that your camera captured.

Nonsense. There are almost no naturally-occurring colors outside the sRGB gamut. A sliver of neon-glowing greens, that occur on the leaves of plants growing under the deep-shade canopies in jungles. Nothing in flowers, sunsets, skintones and the like. Wide gamut is strictly for graphic artists who like to play with "unnatural" colors.

Chris Noble you are wrong.

As your own link shows, the only actual image that exceeds sRGB does so "By doing a + 12 Saturation adjustment on both images, the areas of color clipping become obvious..."

The other examples are from a test pattern where one of the swatches is outside the sRGB gamut.

Also the author comments with regard to the sRGB variants:

And from a practical point of view? On the one hand, the "errors", if you will, are small enough that unless you are doing a lot of color space profile conversion, combined with using outrageous amounts of added color saturation, I doubt you'll ever produce visibly different colors by using one of the sRGB variants that isn't completely color-balanced and normalized.
