CSS Zoom also does a nice job in scaling

So instead of "is not modified by the author" it should have read "cannot be modified by the author"?

And even with this interpretation, note that while radios/checkboxes are indeed examples of controls that are oddly resilient to regular styling (as browsers often use either OS-own UI components, or their own special built-in replaced controls), they are not wholly unstylable. See for instance https://codepen.io/patrickhlauke/pen/opKerg (uses CSS transform on a container, which then results in checkboxes and radio buttons scaling up natively as well).
