Not (entirely) correct.  Please provide example message.

<pre> will be used in format=flowed if the message dictates it.
For example, if HR lines exist, <pre> is used for them.

I think you have some bad sample messages you are looking at.
Note, just because something is tagged as format=flowed does not
mean flowed sematics are actually in effect.  For example, the
message may contain no soft-returns.

No.  I believe Mozilla-based MUAs commonly use format=flowed.
