A snubber is not a bypass. Most bypass caps do nothing useful; some do harm; a few do some good.

The idea of the snubber is to damp the LC resonance formed by the choke and the capacitors, if necessary. It has some similarity to the problem at the output of a regulator, because there you have a virtual inductor (the regulator output impedance) so a capacitor (which people love to add) can resonate.

In my audio documents i have an article written by Morgan Jones where he has done some test with snubbers or just caps positioned across the secondary windings on or across the diodes. HIS conclusion in most cases a 1 nF cap in series with a 1000 ohm resister across the transformers secundary is all you need.
Different snubber in a different position for a different purpose.
