Thanks for that interesting link.
Rotation will be maintained
When planet-sun distance and planet mass are similar to Earth's, there is no reason for tidal lock, because the other planets are far away. Tidal locking depends on size, orbit and mass of the orbiting object and the sun's mass. There is no need for symmetry: rotations could differ. The rotation of a celestial body does not affect gravitational interactions with other bodies, because the center of gravity does not move.
Age would count
In a simulation model, like the one used in the article, you just launch an isolated configuration and wait a few thousand years, until things collide. If they don't collide, conclusion is "stable".
But your picture shows 6 mature, developed planets. In the real universe, planets like Earth exist for >4x10e9 years. In that timespan, orbits get disturbed, eventually causing issues with distances. For example, our moon was supposedly formed by an early collision with a planetary size object. Little is known about earths orbit before that event occurred, but I think "shakeup events" must be included in the simulation ! A subtle orbit disturbance could have grave consequences in due time.
