You want to say when the arrow leaves the string - in worst case scenario. At release the limb tips are moving in same direction: forward.
If the limbs are flapping in opposite directions you have other issues before any nock travel.

It matters because it demonstrates instability in nock travel right at release. Specifically if the limbs are flapping in opposition.
That's not true at all. "Nock travel" isn't even a concept that high-level target archers discuss. As long as your nocking point is set properly through bareshafting.

As far as I know, the definitive factor of whether a limb will flutter like in the video is the stiffness of the material and how curved it is. A super stiff traditional geometry limb like a Hoyt Velos won't flutter at all because it's mostly carbon and in terms of geometry it's closer to a longbow limb than something like a Hex 7.5. And border super recurve limbs are more likely to flutter because of the shape and curve.

At the end of the day, doesn't matter.
