What's different between regular Mi Note 3 TWRP and SAR? Can we use SAR as the standard one or do we have to reflash the other TWRP to be able to use Lineage OS etc?

SAR means System-as-root and with SAR, the ramdisk is in system, not in boot.img. I switched to SAR because Magisk isnt working with non-SAR. As your question, no you cant use SAR TWRP on other roms...

From Android 10 the rootfs is integrated into the system image, implicitly, which is called a system-as-root.

Usually, the root filesystem (rootfs) contains the in-memory mount points to /system, /etc, /sys etc. partitions.
With the system-as-root concept, the above rootfs mount points will be like following:
/system/system
/system/etc
/system/sys
and so on...

With these changes the TWRP or the GApps scripts etc. have to know that the etc mount point is now /system/etc and not like earlier /etc and so on for other partitions as well.

At least for Mi Note 3, Android 10 has this change but not the earlier Android versions. Earlier TWRPs will not work on Android 10 and this SAR TWRP will not work on other earlier Android versions.

I hope this explanation will be helpful to understand the system-as-root concept which was earlier introduced in Android Pie.
SAR was must for new devices launched with Android Pie but it was optional for devices upgrading to Android Pie from Oreo or earlier versions.
But from Android 10 the SAR has been the standard and you cannot change it, as far as I know.

Bugs I found so far:
WiFi signal sometimes can drop and disconnect from my asus rt ac51u.
Overall system performance is quite slow.
Battery drains a little bit faster than PE9.
Lockscreen image sometimes draws in small window (2/5 of screen) and then redraws itself normally.
Fingerprint aunth is buggy. Some apps get crashes.
Gpay and my bank app doesn't work with nfc.
