Absolutely correct on those aircraft. The torque specifications are  written 
to take the thread lubrication into consideration. Even Champion makes  and 
sells a special Anti-Seze for those aircraft engines and their plugs that  are 
specified for thsoe aircraft.

That is NOT the case with BMW  motorcycles, which specify torque for dry, 
non-lubricated threads. 

The  rest of your insults are just ignorant.
