That is certainly a very sensible thing.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, perhaps?) many developers, including your truly, are under the belief that writing code should be as easy to understand as possible is the way to go.
But since it defies an initial logic assessment, I am still waiting for a deeper truth to be uncovered! OMG | :OMG:

Note: I think I found it, it's competition!
While it is your interest, it is the opposite interest of your boss, hence you should do it well enough that your boss doesn't detect it or a competitor doesn't make it any more clear.
Also, when working on your own project, it's your interest to make it as simple and straightforward as possible...

Hence it is not always the case you should make it as obscure as possible... and as obscure as possible has various degrees of obscureness depending on circumstances
