What you've understood - and it is a good analysis - is that in your case mobile traffic has zoomed extremely high and desktop traffic has vanished. It does not follow that this pattern is an intentional and strategic goad to pay for Adwords.
I currently work with scores of websites in various markets, and I can't even find a single example of zombie traffic or throttling in the whole group.
This thread itself, along with the earlier one on the same topic, has only attracted a handful of people posting - and some of them were not talking about the same thing. Surely if this were an intentional strategy we would have seen more contributors by now.
So while I am convinced that there is a real phenomenon here, duly noted and painfully analyzed by now, it is not an "analysis" to jump to a conclusion that it's all about increasing Adwords income.
