Burying a rose graft is actually a common practice in cold climates.i'd never before seen any recommendation to bury a grafted union like that. would be hard to keep after IMO.
as a kid i grew a lot of different roses and would lose a few in the more difficult locations from time to time. usually they were the showier and newer varieties that had grafted unions.
You do have to be watchful of rootstock canes emerging, but it doesn't happen as often as it seems it would.
