But I'm not sure why the FAA would approve something like that. I've seen street-hire sim instructors do checkrides, but they all went through captain training when hired.

Are you sure they didn't attend upgrade training even though they can't hold CA by seniority?
Yes, 100% sure they did not go through upgrade training. They are not contract instructors, they are not part of a 142 program, and they do not participate in the age 65/medical waiver Line Observation Program. Those to me seem to be the only exemptions to the above mentioned requirements.

Can a POI waive those requirements? Surely there are limits on what a POI can approve/waive.
