It's a yes or no condition, there is no numerical factor involved here (the same is true for the drone controller rule btw.)
The section about modifiers being cumulative is about multiple modifiers appyling to the same stat/roll, not every ability being stackable.
Marksman Drones get +1 to hit from friendly drone controllers within 6", +1 from the FM Drone Uplink ability and +1 to hit from 5 Markerlights. Those three modifiers are cumulative, so you get a maximum of +3 to hit if you can get them all at the same time.

Core rules - "all benefits are cumulative". It's one sentence. Very clear and simple English.
Now let me flip it. What benefits in T'au list are not cumulative?
It appears the arguments for pretty much all abilities with benefits under Tau are not cumulative. With the exception of drone table which is explicitly defined for a reason not to get confused.

Take a few Stealth Suits with Drone Controller or Commander even for the Character bonus and suddenly all your incredibly cheap Drones hit on 2+. Something no other unit could ever achieve in our army.
Actually that's another indicator that it does NOT work that way.
