Does anyone have any other concrete information on how CD reduction is calculated? If I have an item that gives me 10% CDR, and I acquire another item that gives me 15% CDR, what is my total cooldown reduction?

From what i know i believe it scales additively up to a hardcap of 40% regardless to what it says in your quote

Maybe it was like your quote in the early days of closed beta, but I've always heard that CDR stacks linearly: you just have to add them. There is also a maximum of 40% CDR.

so 10% + 15% equals 25% CDR.
