Upload limit confusion

Referring to the official nextcloud documentation: https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/latest/admin_manual/configuration_files/big_file_upload_configuration.html
the php variables upload_max_filesize and post_max_size are limiting the size of a uploaded file in webinterface.
In our case thats not right. Both variables are only set to 8MB. phpinfo confirms this.
Nevertheless we are able to upload files larger 10GB.
Is the documentation outdated? Or what else could be the reason that we are able to upload large files.

Setup: Ubuntu 18.04, Nextcloud 20.0.14, Apache, PHP 7.2

Thanks and Regards,
