Skill bug?

So, I've made it into end game, and all of my 'loot' skills are maxed out at level 10. My lockpicker, though, keeps running into containters that say 12% chance to open. Shouldn't there be nothing under base 60% now? skill descriptions basically say there's nothing over a challenge level of 10.

Could it be a bug associated with the skill boosting trinkets? (I was 'cheating' my skills up with the burglar mask and toolbag for some things)

I haven't played that far, but presumably the game contains skill challenges against level 12, which would be 60%->25%->10%, plus Luck, if your skill is at level 10. Shouldn't be bug, just developers giving players an even heavier incentive to save scum. Could also possibly be a small reward to people with very high Luck, since Luck 10 would give 20% chance of success, which would be significantly higher than the 12% you'd get with Luck 2.

Okay, that makes sense. Somehow I didn't think of the simpler idea that there were some extra challenges. Though, I'd wager it not so much an incentive to scum, but more a reward for actually taking skills out of 'scum range' for most other boxes
