What I mean is they're telling a story about the Eugenics war with no canon to call from. It doesn't surprise me that the writers forgot about a couple of time travel stories where characters went back in time post Eugenics but didn't reference the consequences.
But as I've already said, there's significantly more evidence than that, even if it's indirect evidence. If the nuclear war of the 2050s was World War III rather than IV, then the Eugenics Wars can't have been anywhere near as massive.

Of course if Khan is exaggerating the nuclear conflict, America, as a large nation, could have had much of it infrastructure intact after the war.
But again, if he's exaggerating, surely his listeners would know that, because it's not the sort of thing history would overlook.
