Is this serious, or is this a DGCR meme/inside joke? I’m still new here...

I would agree that Paul hasnt gotten better. I have always thought that the way the that ratings are calculated that over time ratings will continue to increase for the same scores thrown. Id predict 1100 rated players in the next 50 years

Is there historical support for that claim? Do the same courses produce continually higher ratings year after year?

The significant increase in artificial OB on several courses for top level events has been a source inflating elite player round ratings because the same degree of offline throwing errors made on courses in the past with minimal OB now have "additional stroke padding" not truly indicating a worse throw than before. Lower rated props tend to pile on these penalties more than top pros playing courses above their throwing precision level and/or risk/reward decision making thus boosting the SSA and resulting player ratings for those who successfully avoid as many penalties.
