In my experience, newer freewheels as you describe coupled with new chains like a KMC Z or X series make for noticeable improvement in shifting. I run a setup like that with a Campy NR and it shifts like butter, actually a tad nicer than my Suntour Cyclone over a Suntour freewheel, if I'm splitting hairs. Comparatively, I have a Shimano Altus LT derailleur shifting an old Sedis chain with flat side plates across a vintage TDC freewheel and the system is finicky about chain/tooth position, not as slick, etc.
