The majority of French made Bundy mouthpieces were most likely made in the 60s and 70s. Bundy eventually moved to rubber and then acrylic Babbitt blanks. For what it is worth, those French Bundy pieces can be faced to play very nicely. Kaspar used the same blanks for a while!

Regarding the boundary layer, I suspect it is a way of marketing the surface texture of the baffle and or chamber. I would guess the so called "Boundary Layer" in a mouthpiece is a result of its roughness. I don't think it has anything to do with the mouthpiece's table concavity, or the reed's relationship to the table. When the surface texture is a little rough, it can create an air film that allows for a smooth laminar flow.

For example: A shark's skin is rough, creating a water film around its body that actually allows it to swim faster.

Different surface textures do effect the way the mouthpiece and instrument plays and sounds.
