Correct. Still unsolved.
@Sebastián Barschkis (sebbas) have you had a chance to revisit it yet?

Just tried it in 2.91 using the .blend from the OP and am still seeing lines.

Thanks.
And yeah displacement + normals is a super common workflow. If it's breaking it as badly as this IMO it should be high priority.

Hey @Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii),
This shouldn't be related to Cycles Adaptive Subdivision at all. This happens in based displacement which is different to adaptive.

@Felix Holzapfel (Wooody)
I appreciate the workaround, but I don't think this solves the problem. Not only would it instantly make the adaptive domain box huge (thus defeating it's purpose) but that smoke density will appear in the render which I obviously don't want. At the moment it's just easier to turn it off, but that drastically increases bakes.
