Nay in most cases.
"competent humans who happen to interview poorly"
Exactly. In truth, whiteboard interviews select for interview skill, not for competency, or even for day-to-day soft skills. In an actual work scenario, you won't have a senior dev breathing down your back and asking you a battery of questions about what you're doing. They'll check out your PR and accept it or make comments as needed.
