You can roll the maximum in every stat slot (which is different depending on race/class) but the odds of getting it are insanely low... it's calculated that you have a better chance of winning the RL lotto. lol. However, if you're patient and don't mind spamming rerolls, you should be able to have 90+ on most characters without issue. I made 3 characters so far in BG:EE with rolls of 90, 92 and 94. You realistically don't need more than 90 points to distribute (even 86+ can usually make a pretty effective character but of course we all want the best!). 90+ is pretty beastly for any class.
My highest "natural" roll was a 96 that I accidently rerolled and finally settled for a 94.
Paladins have higher minimums/requirements and therefore naturally get better rolls. The game rolls each stat separately, this means that the higher minimum stats will always be good so on a paladin you're really only trying to get 2-3 stats to roll high (the required ones will be naturally high) versus other classes where you are hoping 4-5 stats roll high (because only 1-2 are required and have high minimums).
