No, a D-ring won't have the same non-pull through effect, but it is better than a loose ring for that. A D-ring WILL have lateral pressure like a full cheek, but if you compared the length of the bars, the full cheek is longer and uses bit loops, which further prevents pull-through.
I love the bucket analogy, it makes so much sense.
