Basically--what that article is saying is sabots for rifled bores will shoot erratically and keyhole when fired through a smoothbore. I have confirmed this with dozens of tries with all kinds of sabot slugs.

The interesting part of the article is that using Brenneke style rifled lead slugs intended for smooth bores appear to fire very well out of rifled bores. Since they are generally cheaper than the modern sabot slugs made specifically for rifled bores that's something to consider--though I suspect there is a bore-fouling price to pay.
