      POs can (and should) understand items that are not written as user stories as well.

      Your understanding is correct. A slightly different perspective:
      We needn't worry to make each and every PBI a "story";
      So a spike is all right, w/o gerrymandering the boundaries of "user stories".

      On the contrary. The Product Owner represents the business. The product owner is responsible for the project's successfully maximizing ROI. The Product Owner defines and chooses the work to be done. Therefore the Product Owner must understand the work to be done, in terms that enable him or her to choose for maximum ROI.

      Any Backlog Item that the PO does not understand is a weakness, because it takes away from the PO being able to perform responsibly. Therefore, every Backlog Item should be expressed in terms that make business sense to the PO. Therefore, every Backlog Item can be expressed as a user story, and should be.
