<< There is a revised section of sill bolt spacing that reads that the sill

 DIAMETERS. For a 5/8" diameter bolt, this is 4-3/8" which will not allow
 enough room for a 6x6 post.
 Has anyone figured out how to frame a 6x6 post at the end of a wall or next
 to a door?

Bill, It is my understanding the the Seven Bolt Diameters is the AITC 
requirment for minimum distance when considering tension parallel to grain in 
the plate and that 12" is the maximum distance from the edge of the plate. 
Possibly the code is worded incorrectly.
