You're under an incorrect assumption that stacking Cleavers stacks the debuff cumulatively.
This is false for two reasons;
One, because mechanically the way stacking works is that there's a cap to how many of this kind of stack can be on a target. It doesn't matter how many sources are giving stacks, there's a stack limit. This means you can only get to 4 stacks of Cleaver, each worth 7.5% Armor Shred.
Two, because even if Cleaver is bugged
to where it stacks the shred (which, I've seen it stacked several times and never seen the shred stack higher than 30%), it would still go through multiplicative scaling like all other sources of % shred/penetration
, meaning that you could still never get someone all the way to 0% Armor by stacking Cleavers.
