I mean...you can't level your Pokemon above level 100, so how do the stats change?

Yes, but the thing is, EV bonuses are applied at level up. Since you can't level up anymore, your EVs won't ever get a chance to go up, so it's pointless.

In the older games (RBY, GSC, maybe RSE/FRLG, not sure), you could simply deposit the Pokemon into the PC and withdraw it, and the bonuses would be applied, but not in Gen 4 up.

To be more precise, you technically can effectively EV train a Pokemon at level 100, but only through the use of vitamins (which have a limit, and can't max out an EV), and not through fighting wild Pokemon. This is because you gain the EVs at the same time as gaining experience points, and since a level 100 doesn't earn exp, it doesn't earn EVs.
