I've never heard that theory. I have heard folks say that the smoke ring will stop forming at around 140 degrees, but never anything about the pit temp.

Here is a brief article about the smoke ring formation...

I haven't looked into the science behind that, but it seems to make sense.

So, have a lower pit temp will keep the meat below 140 degrees longer and should theoretically give a better smoke ring. It will also take longer to cook, so the meat will be exposed to more smoke.
