The clipping is at the master fader. if you turn down the master the clipping goes away. The attenuated master rescales the mix back down into the legal sample realm.

This whole thing is all anecdotal anyway, but I am just pointing out that the described benefits achieved by those going OTB (again, 'tone' of any particular summer notwithstanding) are awfully similar to the improvements described by the guys who simply tried running more conservative levels than they had been(either by trimming every fader or simply trimming the master) into their 2 bus.
