The instructions that came with my Sigma 150mm OS clearly state that you should turn OS off before removing the lens.

Well, that's a new one because there is nothing of the sort said in the Nikon manuals anywhere and if it was a concern then Nikon would make sure to tell you that you need to turn VR off when in fact it says nothing of the sort. What it does say is this:

"Do not turn the camera off or remove the lens while the vibration reduction is operating. Failure to observe this note could result in the lens sounding and feeling as if an internalcomponenet is loose or broken when it is shaken. This is not a malfunction. Turn the camera on again to correct this."

So, there is no big deal, there is no instruction whatsoever to turn VR off when turning the camera off, only the warning to not turn the camera off whilst VR is operating and even if you do it in not a malfunction. It is clearly stated in the manual. What the manual is stating is for you to not turn the camera off whilst the VR is actually operating, not whilst the VR switch is on, there is a big difference! As you know, when you half press the shutter, the VR works for a few seconds until the image is stabilised and it is in this time frame of a few seconds that you should not turn your camera off.
