Is there a risk for filesystem errors?

in a former question there was confirmed that the monitor command 'quit' is similar to unplug the power cable. Now, for modern operating systems it is recommended to shutdown them (and not to switch off the power supply). Thus the filesystem(s) will be unmounted cleanly to avoid file system errors.

The question is: _Could_ it happen that I get filesystem errors if I use 'quit' in the monitor? Especially for ext4 and ntfs filesystems?

I assume it _could_ happen, but can someone confirm please or not?
