One thing to notice in Paul's rollout, which is also present in mine, that cubeless numbers after double and no double are not the same. Since bot will never lose market, this seems strange to me. Can anyone explain me why two equities in the rollout this is also true in my rollout didn't converge?

After doubling, the bot will play the checkers as if it's DMP and will report as "cubeless" numbers whatever wins/gammons/backgammons result.

After ND, it's more complicated. I think you're right that if the bot were always playing the checkers the same way it would at DMP and if it never passed any of its own doubles, then you would get the same "cubeless" numbers coming out. (In particular I don't think that variance reduction affects the "cubeless" numbers. But this might be worth verifying, with a rollout with variance reduction turned off.) So there are two possibilities: (1) some of its checker plays when the cube is still not turned differ from its checker plays when the cube is turned, and/or (2) sometimes it loses its market.

Possibility (1) seems more likely, but I don't see why possibility (2) can't happen. It won't happen with perfect play, of course, but the bot doesn't play perfectly.
