Lossless compression does not have that quality degradation concern.

But does it really exist? Is FLAC, for example, *really* lossless in
absolute terms or are the losses outside the human audible range (much
like they are in OGG)? IOW, if you compress an uncompressed stream such
as PCM WAV and then re-uncompress the compressed stream, do you get
back exactly the same data as you started with?

Yes, FLAC is really lossless. When you uncompress a flac file you get back exactly the same bits that were originaly compressed.
