The author does mention the extra 1.2x crop but doesn't mention whether he turned off stabilization or not. The crop stays either way but the digital stabilization does visibly soften output.

That's true when viewing a sequence of frames at replay speed.  However, I understand that the stabilization simply repositions "oversize" frames against the crop mask, rather than processing  the individual frames, so an individual frame (which the OP took for his experiment) will not be affected.

I think the line skipping explanation is much more likely.
