Big B you are remebering only part of the code section.
Part of 110.14(C)(1)
(1) Equipment Provisions. The determination of termination provisions of equipment shall be based on 110.14(C)(1)(a) or (C)(1)(b). Unless the equipment is listed and marked otherwise, conductor ampacities used in determining equipment termination provisions shall be based on Table 310.16 as appropriately modified by 310.15(B)(1) through (6).
(a) Termination provisions of equipment for circuits rated 100 amperes or less, or marked for 14 AWG through 1 AWG conductors, shall be used only for one of the following:
(1)Conductors rated 60Â°C (140Â°F)
(2)Conductors with higher temperature ratings, provided the ampacity of such conductors is determined based on the 60Â°C (140Â°F) ampacity of the conductor size used
(3)Conductors with higher temperature ratings if the equipment is listed and identified for use with such conductors
(4)For motors marked with design letters B, C, D, or E, conductors having an insulation rating of 75Â°C (167Â°F) or higher shall be permitted to be used provided the ampacity of such conductors does not exceed the 75Â°C (167Â°F) ampacity.
Look at your breakers, I would bet they are marked 60/75 C or just 75 C
