Any explanation as to why diabolo pellets are opposite to cylindrical bullets/pellets ?

I'm just coming to grips with the busting of a commonly held myth. Other than " īt just does",......I cannot illuminate you.

The explanation for the Magnus moment obviously still applies, but affects the different design accordingly.

Its definitely counter to accepted firearms ballistic theory, and I bet more than a few will be scratching their heads until the theory has been re-examined. Until that time we are stuck with "it just does"......which I personally hate.
