I know it wouldn't apply to a Rotax motor, but in car engines, they put in heavier flywheel's or dual mass flywheels, to smooth the pulses out of the compression and combustion strokes, especially on turbo diesel motors. VW, Audi, Porsche do this, a lot.
Those pulses are probably what tear up the dogs.
Also when you are descending when landing and you throttle back, the propeller indeed gets feathered and sloppy, being driven by the wind, not the motor, with not much or no thrust being created by the prop. Hence the slop, if your dogs are worn.
