I don't think the buds will interfere with rooting. The plants will keep them or not based on the water balance. I would keep them now, expecting to lose them. But if the pieces root rapidly, which...

Phrags and Paphs grow a fan to maturity and flower from the center of that fan. They make offsets from the sides of the fan either before or after flowering. Then the already-flowered fan dies.

I tried this. I split a large bare-root piece into two, one in a terrarium and one in a shallow dish on top of sphagnum moss. When it got hot both died. So pay attention to temperatures.
