Those look pretty fine to me.

I’ve done some through tenons on sides and legs using the Leigh M&T jig (which produces the same rounded edge profile) and they look every bit as nice as a square through tenon. I think the exposed cross section and protrusion of the tenon is what draws the eye more than square vs. rounded corners.

Your suspicions are correct. Domino drawers have been around quite a while. I’ve done it myself.

I really like the looks of the domino assembly!
Different and at the same time looking very sturdy.

I have used bisquits for drawer assembly but the bisquits are not visible and it is a lot of extra work.

A flush cutting trim saw will make short work of cutting off the dominos leaving very little sanding.

My preference for cutting the tenons flush would be an oscillating multi tool. If you were to grind the bottom of the blade smooth (eliminate tooth set from the bottom), there would be few if any scratches on the drawer sides. I like the so-called Japanese style blades, as they cut quickly yet smoothly. Otherwise, it looks like a good way to make drawers.

I’m just waiting for HF to come out with a clone of the Domino for $79.95 (minus a 20 or 25% coupon, of course).
