I find 7's panicked "I am Borg" declarations to be very touching. Because dear 7, you are not. It's not like some vague bit of the old country you return to in your elder years, you're either plugged in or you're nothing. And I think we see that reality even as 7 refuses to.
I didn't care for it. I saw it as something she was made to be in a maturation chamber. Removing that Borg tech should have been like removing body parts from a person. But the series didn't embrace the idea in that fashion, rather in the standard Trek form of what else could she want to be but human. Such a desire would have been more believable to me had she been a former Starfleet officer from that Borg attack at Wolf 359 (I think) than a child molded to be the Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 001.

Doesn't it perhaps say that the Borg are less seductive in their claims to be agents in the search for perfection then what they actually are?

Humanity (or Klingonity or Vulcanity..) is real. The Borg are just sock puppets. They don't know it, but unplug a person and their real species rears its beautiful head.

(This is my in universe explanation, I agree with you about Star Trek and the Holy Altar of Human-ness)

More or less. For me, I'd have found more interest in Seven developing a medium between her individuality and being Borg along the lines of those Borg encountered in Unity. Endgame would have been better had they picked up on those Borg, and that Borg civil war Janeway launched in Unimatrix Zero culminating with Seven returning to the Borg to help restructure the Collective into individuals as she had learned to become.
