So this program gets the thumbs up from me as well.
Although I am not sure how the extra volume at the lower weight (105kg was only 73% of my old max) correlates to a jump in a 1RM.
But the moral of the story is that volume = good.

I always found the back off sets helped me work on technique, and trick myself into thinking that the heavier sets would be easier than they were. Too much work at a heavy weight leads to burn out unless you really think strong.

Don't think this is so weird, as you say volume. Ed Coan deadlift program has speed deadlifts and WS programs also have speed days with light weights?
105kg didn't feel so light or fast to me but I am rubbish squatter anyway.
