If gloves are used to handle a PCBA, wouldn't the glove material need to be conductive or dissapative rather than simply "anti static"? Gloves labeled as static free nitrile, latex or vinyl shouldn't be used to handle a PCBA?

You are correct. But like schmocks, the science behind it gets lost.

Chunks, by the science behind it do you mean the conductive threading and the need to ground the smock or is there some new science we're talking about like the "Corona effect" and wireless ESD grounding lol....?

I still don't fully understand the ESD mambojambo... Why wouldn't antistatic gloves do? Your hands can't be static as your body should be grounded, no?

isn't "wireless ESD grounding" called "lightning" in layman's terms?
