It does in two ways, I think.

First, SSers that are teflon coated will facilitate mains deflection and snapping back.

Second, the "bumpiness" of the stringbed -- caused by the SSer separating the main from the cross by an additional 0.5 mm or so from what it would ordinarily be -- will, provided SSers are used in non-adjacent mains, grab onto the ball more at contact, kind of like a sawtooth. So instead of texturing a string, they texture the stringbed.
