I take power ratings worth a grain of salt these days.

The Lynx 1611 is rated at 390W (!!!!) and it's smaller than the Align 250MX, by like, a lot. No way on this planet will that motor ever hit 390W. Even if it somehow did for a small amount of time (peak on a heli running 6500rpm maybe?), a 200mm machine simply could never put any where near that much load on a motor.

Real world testing is way more important IMO... your 180W rated motor hit 175W... that seems pretty spot on. Seems like modern motor manufacturers like to slap on bigger ratings to make the motors look better than they are.
