Or just add a visually subtle explanation line of the rating scale? .... “100% equals proficient", "5/5 represents numerous projects completion using this tool“, etc

By doing this the problem of applying the same scale on different types of skill still exists. In my opinion it makes more sense just to list the skills and explain it in the same way you done it.
For example:

  • Python: proficient
  • Figma: numerous projects using this

Just my opinion
But I think by doing it like you explained you don't get completely rid of the problems occurring by using a skill bar presentation.
