Are digital cameras more prone to OOF shots than film?

I have a Sigma lens that has to go in for repair. On the Sigma repair website it mentions that "Due to extreme sensitivity of the digital camera mirror box, more than 5 times as sensitive as that of a film camera, it may be necessary to adjust the AF data in your Sigma lens."

I have not heard that before and am curious as the reasons why. On a related note, what physically happens inside a DSLR when the AF fine tuning is adjusted?
