Archery, IBIS, OIS and shutter shock

I wonder if some people are blaming their own poor shutter release technique on shutter shock. I recommend a fascinating book, "Zen in the Art of Archery", that talks (among other things), about how to release the bow string without moving the bow. Not as obvious as it appears.

I also wonder if the sensor mount is a factor? The sensor in IBIS cameras is mounted on electromagnetic actuators, not bolted to the camera frame. Has someone compared shutter shock between IBIS and OIS cameras on a tripod, using the same lens, with IBIS and OIS turned off? If shutter shock is causing the IBIS actuators to jiggle a bit that would be a difference in the photographs. The shutter mechanism is right up against those actuators.
