The reasoning was related to what clin refers to.

Weakness at the corners and the fact that cutting the square on the end of the dowel and the mortise in the other weakens the whole thing.

One poster refers to grain direction. But I don’t see that as being any different. Unless this was the shear thing.

The application is a tail vise screw. The thicker dowel is the head end.

Nothing special about the assembly. It will just be glued (possibly with epoxy) and then clamped (if needed).

I will post the thread later.
