After reading your message I checked the model releases from several resin manufacturers; F&C, Resin Car Works, Speedwitch Media, Yarmouth Model Works, and even the new Southbound Modelworks & Decal company. I reviewed all their recent wood-sheathed house car kits and found the castings to represent pretty tight boards. I don't see overly exaggerated wood sheathing on kits released in the last decade. I gotta scratch my head here. Only one question comes to my mind.

What are you talking about? 

Please point out what I am missing that has bothered you about the wood sheathing on recent HO scale resin freight car kits.
