The only legitimate reason to patch is time-lags between upstream and
current version.

Not true. There are licensing reasons, difference in defaults, differences in approaches between upstream and distributions etc.

If this isn't reason, then patching is a strong indication for something
about the development model not being functional.

It could also be indicative of that. Encouraging patches to be submitted upstream is a good thing but the number of patches are not indicated as a review blocker and won't stop a package from being included in Fedora.
