And this is showing where the problem is (as you were saying [1]):

https://gist.github.com/jlelli/f5438221186e5ed3660194e4f645fe93

Just look at the plots (and ignore setup).

First one (pid:4483) shows a single task busy running on a single CPU,
which seems to be able to sustain turbo for 5 sec. So task util reaches
~1024.

Second one (pid:4283) shows the same task, but running together with
other 3 tasks (each one pinned to a different CPU). In this case util
saturates at ~943, which is due to the fact that max freq is still
considered to be the turbo one. :/
