I don't think that statement is accurate.
Which part ?

Probably this part:
"After running a major compaction, automatic minor compactions are no longer triggered, frequently requiring you to manually run major compactions on a routine basis."

From what I read what happens is that it takes a lot longer for minor compactions to be triggered because 3 more files with the size equal to the compacted one have to be created?
