If I understand it full duplex does not double the
But rather upload can progress at the same time as
can be useful for a file-server where my reads do
not conflict with
your writes (on the network wire).
For download the ACK packets can flow without
up/download. Thus it can be possible to approach the
bit rate in any one direction.
Am I confused?

That depends on flow control method.
With stop&wait flow control max throughput is always 50%
of the max line bit rate, Full duplex helps very little on
protocol like sftp are of this type.
Better flow control methods like sliding windows is very
sensitive to the latency of ACK packets. typical efficency
of s-window is ~60% on half dulplex and 80% on full
100% efficency is nvr achived with a single s-window
connection though. http/ftp belong to this cat.
