It's best to turn off VR while on a tripod.

In theory, yes.

In practice, not always:

Motion during exposure/mirror movement.
Gusty winds.

Unstable ground/platforms: Vibrating bridges, rocking boats, wooden walkways with traffic, etc.

There's a reason why Nikon has included a VR "Tripod Mode" on many of its tele lenses.

Best Regards,

RB
