l'année où Hitler est né....that would be a precise time an action took place, right? The lesson confirms that such a date would be an, not année.

There are exceptions to the rule and these are quite frequent when using 'an' .
I would say 'année' is used more frequently than 'an'.
We say -
L' an 0
Le nouvel an
'Le Nouvel an chinois 2019 est l'année du cochon'
is an example when talking about the same year using both words.
Not easy ....
