Yeah exactly, I don't think we're necessarily disagreeing here and I get the feeling our training is very similar
I do a lot of work with variations and assistance, just like you I do high bar squats to help my squats and some chest-specific exercises to help my bench.
It's really just a matter of responding to weak areas. Everyone is individual so blanket prescriptions like 'triceps for bench' while true for probably most people isn't always the best thing to do to the exclusion of everything else.
