Another way of looking at their score is that despite having fewer ops and transmitters they did better than the other M/M teams. It would be a problem if they ran M/M and then claimed M/2.
Also, there is a huge assumption here that everyone who claims CR3L are being unethical knows what the multiplier radio actually did. It is entirely possible that the mult radio worked everybody and this is not knowledge that can be gleaned from the 3830 post. Ditto for band changes.

If they were really Mult-Multi wouldn't you think they would've been spotted more? Plus they had only 7 operators, which is about what they've had in past years when running M2X.
