Is it any worst (or better) than the false bottom ballot boxes or the
ballot boxes with dodgy seals.

Under the current law once a valid vote is cast and placed into a ballot
box it can not removed from the count.

So, even if there is proven illegality (very difficult) the vote still
counts.

The dead will vote often and early!!!

In Queensland, SA and other states abuse is wide spread.  Branch
stacking / rigging is the norm just sometimes it is just a little less
obvious.
