Ah ok, so that's what you mean by "technically".
The point is Jums, that it's technically very difficult to exactly limit the revs instantaneously, unless you are really conservative and make the engine super sluggish and no team is going to do that. There will almost certainly be overshoot, but the steady state or static response will comply. I don't know what the accepted principles are in regulating this or what is the general approach from all the teams. Probably not a bad idea to establish that context before passing judgement.

Not only that, the regs are kinda ambiguous.
The regs don't say Max RPM in acceleration is 13500rpm.
The say something along the lines of "target strategy of rev limiter is 13500rpm"....

When some magazine ran the r6 on the dyno, they found the rev limiter was actually kicking in at 1krpm+ less than what the tach said.
They claimed it was originally planned to rev that high, but they couldn't make it do it, but promo stuff was already out the gate. They offered a buyback. As to how many people took them up on it, I don't know.
