I think it's ridiculous that they're 'the sneaky Marines', because Marines aren't sneaky - their Scouts are, but Power Armour makes a noise like an idling V8 and that's just standing still. You might be able to sneak up on a half-deaf Ork sleeping off a hangover, but not much else.
I think the idea that Raven Guard are 'stealthy' is a bit of a misconception. You're right, you can't sneak up on someone wearing power armour.

I see Raven Guard more as masters of guerrilla tactics, ambushes, hit and run attacks etc. more than straight up stealth.

Plus Corax and I believe some others have the ability to make people not notice them even in plain sight. I don't know if that's a skill that has survived 10,000 years.
