Your thoughts are valid for lumber with a higher moisture content and lumber stored in uncontrolled moisture environments, although air dried or kiln dried when minimum moisture content is achieved and lumber is stored inside in low moisture conditions it is less likely to warp and twist with a little more distance between supports but I personally still store on my racks with 16” on center supports and ‘sticker’ spacing.
