Sorry, I do not understand this - why would I be likely to break a
spoke is its head sits in a chamfered hole? On many (most?) hubs all
spoke holes are chamfered on both sides... what am I missing?

I don't think this is for radial lacing - the chamfered/un-chamfered pattern is the same on both front and rear hubs, and rear hubs are not usually laced radially, at least not on both sides.

- the hubs I got do not look like Campy Record, they have round cutouts and no line like on Campy hubs.
