So my question is: Is every Buddha and Arahant omnibenevolent?
A better quote in the suttas, somewhere, it says that Buddhists cultivate boundless compassion. But compassion isn't always what we'd call "nice". For example, sometimes a compassionate parent needs to scream at or punish their child.
Boundless compassion might not be the same as what you mean by "omnibenevolence".
