As you wrote, with a short attack time, the distortion is not detectable.
In a digital compressor the attack time is in a way "negative"; The signal
analyzed in the side chain, during which time the trough-going audio signal is
travelling in a buffer and is delayed. If there are high levels detected
threshold level, the digital process will reduce the gain in such a way,
waveform will not be clipped.
An analog dynamic processor is always "late" of what it should have done.
If we mean by distortion, that the output signal is different than the
I agree with you, but that is what a dynamic signal processor is intended
