When the Square D catalog list a circuit breaker as `Continuous Current Rating @ 40 degrees C`, is it the the same as being 100% rated?

No. It does not mean 100%. It is a bit of a misnomer, intended to distinguish between handle rating and interrupting rating. Handle rating would be a better description.
