A reasonable idss match is better than 10%, some like 5 % , or even tigher, but it changes with temperature, even holding them in your fingers changes the idss,
. You need to let them stabilize in your idss test for a couple of minutes, with no breeze, and donít touch them , even changes in house temperature causes some drift, so measure them at the same time of day

The idss value you need depends on the circuit design.

Also, spec variance for BL grade range from 6-12...what it optimal and what happens the further you from optimal. Does it increase noise? Does sound quality deteriorate?
Refer here for the store's advice on JFET matching and the relevance of tolerance:

JFET matching information – diyAudio Store
The JFET matching tolerance required for any of Nelson's projects is 1mA
You can fact check that detail through the various threads here and over at First Watt / PassDIY.

Fun fact / side-note - JFET guru, Erno Borbely, sold JFETs matched to 0.5 mA Idss according to the archived price list that I found:

So, the noted comment from the store would not appear to be unreasonable.
