"In any event, jumping into those craters did not perceptibly improve the soldiers' survival rate"
It may be difficult to prove exactly, but actually perhaps it somewhat did - except they were Right for the Wrong Reasons - many deaths and injuries were caused by shrapnel and shell fragments, not by a direct hit by artillery fire (which would be instantly fatal, anyway), and hiding in any terrain depression certainly lowered casualty rates.
