HELL man... I worked in the LA MORTGAGE industry, in subprime on top of it.
This appears to be a "setting an example" probe. I say this because every company I know of from small to big did this. The same deal was done for Elton John, John Travolta and SLASH at my old place of employment. The whole industry was so slimy
you couldn't believe it until you experienced. The LO would get out a calculator, figure out the Min. Yearly income and work the buttons until a person qualified. Literally
making up numbers behind the applicants back, calling them back with good news ( "you qualify for ------ rate ARM", etc...

100% false and BS!

A number of us rebelled and nearly got fired for pointing this out to the CFO.
