Yes that is plausible. I have a pair of 30x34 slim boot which have a 34" waist. That's the reason I don't bother with eBay anymore for RRL denim unless I'm familiar with the wash and know it's a recent model. With older models, the sizing is all over the place and the sellers can't measure waists properly.
Even a few posts back someone had asked about straight leg sizing and just today I bought a pair from a boutique which had different sizing compared to one I had bought and returned on eBay. The eBay pair were a washed pair tagged 32" and they were true to size, but the rest of the jeans fit insanely large and I felt like I was back in highschool wearing huge ass skater pants.
The straight leg I bought today were a washed pair of pink line selvedge tagged 30 waist, with an actual 32 waist. Both had the non-upside down levis arcuate.

For instance I bought a pair of the distressed slim boot in 32x34 and the waist measured 36-36.25... which was way too big. I bought another pair of of 32x34, distressed and they measured 34" and fit great...
