What are you quoting?

Earlier you hypothesized that people who bottomed out their studs were snapping them because they weren't leaving "room for the stud to screw in."

No, You don't torque down studs to head nut specs, but they should be bottomed out or shouldered in the case to specifically avoid turning as you apply torque to the head nut.

I will also put a little medium strength threadlock on my studs, especially in bikes with brand new cases where the stud threads are new and clean, so that I am not accidentally unthreading them as I pull the motor apart again and again.
