Yes, I'm sure the vehicle is capable of 1000+ lbs in normal operation. The door panel value (850 lbs) is to cover themselves in the case of some component failure (brakes, steering, suspension etc.) in a crash where they could show that the cargo + passengers loading was higher.
To muddy things even further, I found another value online at http://www.media.chrysler.com/dcxms/...nltd_Specs.pdf which shows 892 lbs (see last table).
I guess as far as we're concerned the max payload value is "only a suggestion".

My tire and carrying capacity label reads 850 lbs., just like your example.
4 guys my size and you couldn't carry ANY cargo, by that standard....

In case anyone else does a search....
Found a 2012 JKU automatic Rubicon (with Max. Tow Package and 4.10 axles) at the local dealer and took a look before my test-drive.
The label on the driver's side door column states that the total load of cargo and passengers is not to exceed 850 lbs.
This seems low for such a robust vehicle and does not agree with the table at Jeep Towing/Payload Comparison | Jeep.com which shows 1081 lbs.

The nearest dealer Rubicon is 120 miles away so I can't look myself...

2012 Unlimited Rubicon payload
Could anyone with a 2012 JK Unlimited Rubicon with automatic transmission let me know the payload specified on the loading placard? I can't find a definitive answer online in any documentation.
Does it vary between 3.73 and 4.10 axle ratio or depending on tow package?
