A smart NLE should be caching frames ahead and behind so direction change is smooth. The size of the ahead buffer might be bigger than behind but as soon as direction changed, the buffers should adjust. With modern hard drives the direction change should be seamless. Any stickyness due to drives would manifest itself regardless of direction if the software controlling the caching was not optimal. That's why NLEs and DAWs have minimum RAM requirements.

If the buffers are optimised for SSDs or RAIDs then that is not smart software. Optimisation should be around the minimum spec.
