Maybe a slight clarification makes the quoted statement easier to accept.
I think what that sentence wants to say is that the overall via capacitance
becomes like a transmission-line capacitance; it does not disappear, but
is distributed. Of course the usual 'it depends' applies: this statement
is a good approximation as long as the biggest vertical spacing in the
namely the thickest dielectric or thickest conductor is still much less than
the wavelength of the highest frequency of interest.

"What has been demonstrated by simulations as well as by laboratory
measurement is that when a signal travels the length of the plated through
hole or via, the parasitic capacitance of the hole is distributed along the
length of the hole, rendering it virtually invisible."
