Default PA bx_console(s) Gain Staging vs Britson

I've had the Neve channel for awhile, but I picked up a second-hand copy of the Focusrite SC channel. Both sound really cool, but the gain staging isn't clear.

Britson trains you to set all individual tracks at 0vu (-18dbfs). My question is, do the BX consoles function in a similar way? If I calibrate the VU meters at 0vu=-18dbfs, then set the output level to 0vu, is this correct gain staging?

Theoretically, I should be able to use only BX channels on all tracks, if I follow this method. Am I missing anything?

Has anyone noticed the bx_console plugs have odd scaling behaviour in Reaper? I can't increase past 75%.
