It has been getting more and more difficult to know the software for years. Partly because they are making bloated crap and partly because the documentation is terrible.
I think it's because systems have become more complex (though poor documentation can definitely be an issue). The days of being able to hold the entire stack in one's head is long gone. Systems are definitely well past the point of being able to ship with printed old school style programming/api manuals as well.
