Yes. Fwiw, I've seen my FFE actually pull 30A but never more than that.

Yes, the FFE has a 6.6kW onboard charger, so if you EVSE can supply 30A (7.2kW) then the car will take the full 6.6kW and charge in almost half the time.

16A@240V = 3.84kW
27.5A@240V = 6.6kW

Maybe Chargepoint is wrong, but it shows that my newly installed home EVSE is pulling 6.98 kW (though it shows 23 miles added in an hour (real time). I thought it peaked at 6.6 kW. I'm running it out of a Nema 6-50 with a 60A breaker.

Its 6.6kW into the battery, there are losses in the EVSE, and the car's internal charger thus it is not uncommon to see rates as high as 7kW.
