How are landline broadband caps such a red flag when the entire cellphone industry is based around data caps? Is wireless data really so much more precious than wired?

Wireless data is incredibly expensive. You license spectrum which is itself very expensive. The infrastructure needs constant maintenance by highly qualified staff. You need costly permits for local municipalities and to rent the space from local businesses or whoever is leasing the space where you need to drop a site. Your insurance costs are 2-3 times higher than a wireline business. The equipment needed is sold at enterprise rates. On top of that you have all of the expenses of your average ISP.

All things considered, wireless data is actually cheap in some respects.
