I have disassembled military computer/electro gear that was what we had heard described as being part of the "Tempest" program.
Probably this was a simply a set of standards to prevent EMF evesdroping.

Fine screen mesh gaskets on all the cover plates and the plugs on the empty ports to ensure 100 percent shielding.

I do not doubt that they were housed in rooms that were also caged.
Perhaps, outside of the room you would then generate sweeping radio frequency havoc.

The key here is total shielding. No leaks at all.
I would be very suprised to see a 2% reduction in hiss and I would bet that you still would need to stand in that certain direction.
