The guy's probably not realizing that it's possible to have 3 31s on the egg if each parent has a non-31 at different IVs. Or just stupid.

I believe it. More often than not I get 5IV Pokes, but every now and then I get a 4IV one.

Yeah sometimes even a pair of 6IV parents will occasionally give off 4IV and even 3IV offspring.

Destiny Knot doesn't overlap IVs. Full Stop.

if you are getting different results you're doing it wrong. If this was even remotely true, it would take MUCH longer to ever get to 4 or 5 IV pokemon starting with just 2s from the safari.

If this legitimately is happening then its another unknown variable at play here, unless you can tell me why I have boxes full of 5-IV pokemon hatched consecutively from the same parents.
