You "can" see through the black ink used in CMYK printing
I won't attempt then to argue against the voice of experience. However, I'm surprised that the black ink used in process printing is any different from the black ink used ordinarily, whose colour (or rather, lack of coulour) will not be much affected by the colour of what's beneath it. Still, the human eye detects extraordinarily small variations in colour or light received.
