So, to tie a nice tidy bow around my understanding of this (don't get your hopes up!) the AGM's fast charge rate is it's ability to absorb a charge faster, not as a function of the charger 'pushing' a higher load into it...right?
AGMs will accept a charge of a little higher voltage than flooded batteries. However, it is not good to charge them at the higher voltage charge of a gel cell battery. It should not harm them to charge them at flooded battery recommended voltage charge as it is close (but not over) to the AGM recommendation.
