This video proves nothing either way really but it was interesting to have a listen, and I bet they enjoyed making it.

I fast forwarded to the end to hear the final product. Compared to original Motown recordings on vinyl this replication is a little too bright and overly clean and transparent, the bandwidth sounds like it needs further reduction for a warm Lo-Fi sound. Basically this sounds too "Hi-Fi" and dynamic for absolute period authenticity. I don't know all the techniques they employed, I wan't prepared to watch the whole video.

Further mixing to soften the sound could get it closer to what we expect. That is if the aim was to truly fake up the sound of the recordings of the period.
One man's open and clear is another man's harsh and tiring.
