I agree with him, however if the track needs additional support you can use a spacer between it and the wall. Also by having the door set out a few inches from your wall you will be able to use a narrow picture or piece for wall decor.

Is there a solution to installing this type of door in an opening where one wall is 2-3 inches deeper than the other (offset?) My husband is so wanting this type of door to hide laundry room from family room area. Also, there is no header across the two walls/doorway. Anybody?

Exposed wood member to mount the track on (wood can be inset in narrower wall finish or door mounted off center to get door closer to wall) - door butts into offset wall with closure strip at offset wall.
