The "rate reducer" is more of an anti-bounce/vibration device intended to prevent the hammer from falling too early; a reduction in rate of fire is simply a side effect. It is a part of the trigger group and rides on that axis pin so no, you wouldn't need the illegal hole to install it. The only thing that goes on the auto sear pin is the auto sear and it's spring.

I completely agree about not trusting the Feds with respect to constructive intent, though as it doesn't contribute to auto fire in any way I couldn't imagine having the hammer retarder ("rate reducer") installed in a semi auto AK would be illegal.
