I have checked a set of OnionPerf results from 2018 against the archived consensuses. For a total of 21 321 circuits created by OnionPerf January 2018, 23 (0.1%) first hop relays did not have the Guard flag set in either the fresh consensus at the time or the previous one. The conclusion is OnionPerf paths reflect user paths.

The script I wrote for this will soon appear on https://github.com/ana-cc/OPValidator pending some cleanup.
