Not doing tugging/bite-work during teething has more to do with keeping the tugging/bite-work association for the puppy positive than about safety for the teeth. The baby teeth are coming out anyways, the adult shouldn't be damaged by puppy tugging.
Some pups have very tender, sore mouth during teething, and they may associate pain with bite-work. You want to always keep the association positive - but as mentioned by others, some dogs just don't care.
