My pre-AI Nikkors fit on my FG. The ridge does not seem to interfere with the AI tab.

My 200mm Nikkor - Q C is the same as the 105mm and my 50mm Nikkor - S has had a file taken to it by a previous owner to mate with the AI tab but I suspect that without it, it too would mount the same as the 105mm
The aperture stops down when the shutter is fired but how can it meter if it doesn't know how far away from wide open, the aperture is set?
