The 90 deg after reaching 100 lbs torque isn't a "sucky" term,  Manufacturers give a torque figure in order to impose a certain amount of stretch to the bolt in order to prevent loosening in service.

90 degrees, depending on the overall length of the bolt may have been the correct amount of stretch.

As it appears you found out!
