Yes, I think there could be various changes in slope in the load lines, as different tubes go into cut off or grid clamping (including those on the 'other side' of the push-pull).
Biasing the 6V6 and 6L6 independently might give some control over this.
It's tricky, but I think whichever of the tubes grid clamps first, might also clamp the grid signal to the other, depending on the design of the input circuits to the grids.
