You will be fine if you just rehydrate whatever amount you plan on adding to carbonate your beer into the bottling bucket.  If you are worried about osmotic pressure, you may want to consider allowing some of your racked beer to mix well with the priming sugar first before adding your rehydrated yeast to still allow it to blend in well.

In his bottling process he is not using a bottling bucket. He is going directly from fermentor to bottle and adding simple syrup to the beer bottles out of a spray bottle.

I can also squirt a shot per bottle of rehydrated yeast in water out of the same spray bottle.
