The article explain proof (polierte Platte), not prooflike. The effect I described is not a deterioration, but a disappearing enhancement that is not included in the price.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Let me put it this way: You say "Proof and proof-like should be easy to distinguish." This is, for example, how Münzenrevue and Münzen & Sammeln put it (from the "Glossar" on page 4). And that happens to match my experience with German PL coins. But of course things may well be totally different when it comes to the Russian coins from the initial post ...
