I suspect you are correct about the grinder being a bad thing to try.

At this point I've decided to stick with the OEM studs going forward, despite the ARP studs being so much better. If the car needs a hubs-off piece of maintenance then I might reconsider.

The OEM studs are definitely the safest and easiest approach, but grinding a flat is a valid option as long as you use reasonable care and some common sense.

The instance that I experienced was someone using an old grinding disc that was generating more heat than grind, and then not paying attention to, or not understanding, what was happening.
