Is the gyro effect taken into consideration in the control strategy or is it somehow mitigated?

This paper states

The reactive momentum of rotor rotation influences the control of trajectory. Therefore this parameter should be accounted for during the rocket engine layout determination.

.......

For the small rockets that do not have active stabilization controls,the value of gyroscopic momentum has a significant influence obstructing the rocket turn. For the large rockets ,the influence of gyroscopic momentum is not significant.
