I haven’t found any other material that backs this up.
Every strength of materials book I've ever looked at since 1959 shows a bolted connection analysis methodology in which direct loading is shared equally between all the bolts and moment loading is proportional to the distance of the bolt from the center of the bolt pattern. The old AISC rules called this the elastic method. There's an example on page 4-58 of the Eighth edition. The example covers torsional loading but it works the same way for moment loading.
