Simply put, it's just how it's designed at the moment. It's why bolster exists at all in the first place.
First, see this.

Secondly, I am not sure what Break is considering PvE geared, but what I consider PvE geared is someone who runs 168 mods or higher. Those mods, even stated in the patch notes, are not bolsterized the same as low tier PvE gear. The people that run full 180 mods and expect to do something are hysterical. You are better off augmenting an empty set of gear, and leaving all armorings, mods, and enhancements out of it, seriously.

As far as I have seen, the Classic gear, which also has a set bonus, bolsters quite well for those who are interested in starting PvP coming from a PvE background. Ilum, Black Hole, and Section X dailies all grant Classic comms. Get on it.

Fundamentally, personal player ability matters a lot more than gear. A poorly geared player who understands things like objectives and target priority will always be better than a well geared player who's awful.

I wish someone would put time into finding out how everything bolsters and parsing the data to something like a spreadsheet for every patch that new gear comes out. I'd bookmark the hell outta that.

It doesn't have parses, but some people think its detailed enough. Its a tier off though, so it may be out of date.

There's a "bolsterizer" near the combat dummies on both fleets, if anyone wants to test things themselves.

The TLDR version is basically that when Obroan was top tier PvP gear, you wanted to get that for everything but MH/OH and for that you'd run with whatever mod level kept you near max Expertise. It hasn't been updated for Brutalizer, but that post basically said the difference between Obroan MH/OH and non-Obroan MH/OH was pretty slim so my current assumption is that Brutalizer wins out since we're basically just now "catching up" with the item level breakpoint that Bolster hovers around anyway.
