And that makes sense, I think. If we're putting this into a rule that OOTP can incorporate, it should be, "Except for home runs, the hitter on the winning walk-off hit should be credited with advancing exactly as many bases as the winning run."

In fact, until the 1920s, this was true even on home runs. If memory serves, Babe Ruth had at least one walk-off home run in his career that wasn't counted as a home run because that's not how they scored it back then.
