Bill, you don't say which article you refer to (Naylor or Bigio?). I'm
certainly no expert, either on wood qualities or physics. I believe it's
correct to say that a smoother surface would have some effect on the way
sound waves behave - what effect that might be, I couldn't say.

Naylor's article goes into some depth (no pun intended) about how the oil
affects the wood.
