As Cosmic said, the RCS console uses your base turn rate for its modification. Basically, if your ship needs the RCS console because it is too slow, that is just too bad. You get no worthwhile turn rate from it. If your ship is fast enough that it doesn't need the RCS console, then why put one on in the first place?
As for the armor, welcome to Cryptic math. Armor applies diminishing returns with the more armor modifiers you have, and the diminishing returns start with the FIRST armor modifier, not the second. So, just having one armor modifier (like that console) will not give you the full effect of that console. This applies to all ships.
