Once, a guy about 6'2" said to me "I'm 6 foot 4. You can't be 6 feet because I'm 6'4".
Another guy working in a store, who was wearing thick boots, said "I'm 6'1". I walked by him and he was a least 2 inches shorter than me. He was probably 5'9.5"-5'10".
I can't speak for everyone, but I do not lie about my height IRL. Online dating is another story. If you're 6' like your profile says, you know that being 5'10 and up is an asset. Being under 5'9 is a major strike against you with every inch under being an additional stab to a wound.
I have gone to the gym and other guys lie to your face about how tall they are, tall or short. One guy who was exactly my height told me he was 5'10, so it does happen. I've know taller women call out tall guys when they lie about their height, so it's not something specific to short guys.
