But changing the registrar may indeed pull in a change of NS records,
because there's a questionable rule for .org domains that if the NS
records end in .org, too, their second-level domains needs to be
registered at the same registrar as the domain they're responsible

I own two .org domains and they're registered at different registrars
as I wanted to avoid a single point of failure in my private
infrastructure (burned child, etc.).

I coped with that rule by adding additional DNS A records for my name
servers with a non-.org domain (a .ch domain in my case) and everthing
was fine again. PTR records seem to be irrelevant for the above
mentioned rule.
