Yes, the paper even says so.

The graph of failure rate is interesting.  How useful is a graph
that shows the failure rate of a general purpose film resistor as
being from about 5E-10 to 8E-8 ?

In any case, they are saying that 5% of a (to be pessimistic) 8E-8
phenomenon results in a short circuit... I think that qualifies as
very rare.

Put two resistors in series, and it becomes even more rare.
