Of course the US didn't care much either. Then suddenly they started
denying entry ot folks when they didn't have an appropriate exit
documentation from the previous visit

As a traveller from the richest democracy in the world, you can stay as long
as you like, in practice, in any country in Europe and come and leave
whenever you like , as long as you don't get into any trouble or get caught
working illegally. In theory though it's 90 days out of 180 but I drive
buses through borders with different nationalities and have never seen an
American even questioned about their entry into anywhere in mainland Europe.
The UK can be a little more fussy though if you look like a budget
traveller...

Which country? If it was a Schengen country (more or less Western Europe
minus Switzerland and the UK) then you don't have a 6 months visa but a
90-day entry. After that you are technically required to leave for 90 days.
As you've already seen by their reaction at the border (a frown rather than
turning you around and sending you home) they don't actually care.

The chance of being excluded from entry if you leave the Schengen area for a
week and then turn around and come back, is higher than if you just stay
there as long as you want.

Real true, as Luxemburg is a member of EU and inside the Schengen area.
