Nothing you've described is remotely normal and is probably some misguided effort by the liability insurance morons to dumb down belaying and make you "safe".
I dont think it is the insurance, it is probably the staff that are idiots (most gym-staff members are as inexperienced as many of their members). I hear "our insurance makes us" all the time in the gym, but I think that is a bullshit. Insurance companies are not qualified to write policy on esoteric rock climbing procedures and they know it, and I strongly doubt insurance companies get involved to the level that they are telling gyms how their members have to belay.
