Actually, the methodology used to generate that chart is extremely dodgy. You can read the comments in the link you last provided for a good explanation as to why. To make a long story short, those aren't averages, they're medians, which means they're one particular raider's stats (saying "I took the median of the top 20" is essentially the same as saying "I took the 10th best person's stats and used those alone"), which will basically inflate everyone's stats above average, but inflate those classes with less consistent, more randomly influenced damage significantly more. Indeed, it will often show lower average DPS specs above higher average DPS specs due to selecting for the lucky people who the RNG favored with more crits and higher damage rolls.
