Dexa is consistantly 3-6% higher in very study I have seen. You should see how pissed body builders with the 8% BF are when they hop in a dexa and put out as 14%. Once you realize the BF measurements are pretty much BS for individuals (for groups there is some validity), you can stop worrying about them.

No way Froome is 9.5% during any of the TDFs or the Olympics. Maybe during the winter and off-season. It doesn't say when they tested him.
He is definitely closer to 6-7% in grand tour form.
Different methods will yield different results. The study used DEXA. If it is done with skinfold calipers or BIA, could get a different result (all within the error of measurement for that method).
DEXA often gives "higher" readings. Here is a pretty decent write up
