I notice this behavior as well.  I believe it is the fact that SQM is 
not the true bottleneck.  Senders continue to increase their transfer 
rate until active queue management on your router causes them to slow down.

If I watch LEDE's built-in realtime traffic graphs, I do see incoming 
rates higher than the set limit.
