If you are concerned, you can, as I did, cut the petals loose before inserting them in the hull. After about 100 rounds I quit doing it because there was no discernible difference in performance. Not that I did comparative patterning or anything, I just couldn't see any improvement in scores or breaks.
Giving it some thought I realized that the wad separates from the shot somewhere between the choke and the first few inches from the muzzle so there shouldn't be any difference and I detected none. The fact that the wads flew quite far down range is what took me down that rabbit hole in the first place.
