Are they even doing that? It's my impression that they're just looking
up the IP address in some list that includes all Tor exit relays. But
yes, I get how that's arguably enough, in that all Tor exits will on
average look alike.

I can't imagine any resolution to this. Anonymity is Tor's key goal.
There are jerks who need anonymity. And there are providers who want to
exclude jerks. If you want Tor's "anonymity", and you want to evade
discrimination against Tor users, you need to avoid identification as a
Tor user. What else?
