If you only use the space between curves, then yes, the yard gets shorter fast, particularly once you consider the yard ladders. But there are ways to curve a yard ladder to get longer yard tracks, such as a pinwheel ladder. I would expect between 1 and 3 trains per session with two being common and 3 being a little rare.
The yard-like tracks on the left side of the plans are from a while back, and they are actually laid down.
I use two rules of thumb: for a normal passing siding between the curves multiply the train-length by 2 and you find the required length of your table. Classification is done when a train is entering a yard and his consist is divided for different destinations. The above is my opinion, from an active and experienced Model Railroader in N scale and HO since 1961. Hello HO Dave here is a web site that may answer many of your questions about layout design. Note that some of those templates (including the #6) are sized to print on Legal sized paper. The #5 is designed to print on Letter-sized paper on multiple sheets -- not sure why they didn't set up all the templates to print on the same sized sheets of paper.
I believe that the FastTracks templates are generally designed after the NMRA recommended practice. Compound ladders help more, but for a small number of yard tracks, the effect may not be as much as you hope in terms of preserving yard track length.
The number of tracks in a given width doesn't vary with the type of ladder used, of course, but does effect the useable length. It certainly helps if you make some of the classification tracks single-ended, as in this small design. Think about your number of operators and your traffic patterns while finalizing the design.

What you definitely need are enough classification tracks to easily sort out incoming cuts, but this could be as few as three or four tracks, depending on your traffic patterns. Just borrowing a yard design without knowing how a yard works or without having some idea of yard capacity needs is at best a 50:50 proposition. The design looks like a good place to arrive with maybe a dozen cars, spend some time working pulls and set-outs, and then depart. You would gain a "sorting track if you can bring the loop back on itself prior to coming through the yard. The blue cross over on the middle left would be better served by flipping it the other direction. What do trains using this yard do?  If I was operating at this yard and you were going to write down what work I have to do, what would it look like? If the yard is to service the industrial area it seems like a bit of overkill on the amount of yard track. If you are wanting a classification yard I would recommend that it be on the mainline (like the track shown at the top of the overall context) and that its double ended. A yard crew will be very busy working to keep the trains running on the layout for the rest of the operating crew. Rolling stock is owned by both the association and individual members, and does not belong to any specific time period.
Note the design for the layout was originally a dogbone with two reversing loops, and recently I've decided to instead go with a lift out bridge.
I have tried to implement those features in the past, but the problem I'm finding is a lack of ideas to fit effectively fit a functional yard without consuming half of the layout. With my layout, the turns in each corner seem to really shrink available space, since the yard can't begin until after the turn.
I plan on using a dedicated switcher for the yard with the road engines changing trains or just simply dropping the train off. It had beside the main or thorough fare just one passing siding doubling as arrival and departure track.

If that track is straight for a short distance, the center of the yard can curve without causing problems (although the broadest possible curves ease the task of shoving cars, of course).
Since more trains will enter this yard it will not take to much time before one of the bowl-tracks has sufficient cars for a train. At this point, just reading, learning, drawing, erasing, reading some more and buying more graph paper. I've printed out some templates and found it odd that a #6 is shorter than a #5 from the switchpoint to the frog..?? However, if the #5 is built with a very generous lead length (from points to frog) making for a very gentle divergence, and the #6 is built with very skimpy lead, what you've observed could concievably happen. It is possible to steepen the ladder a bit by placing a slight curve in the ladder track and corresponding curves in each body track. Getting a yard that's too large is a waste of precious layout space, and getting a yard that's too small won't be very satisfying. It is nothing more than a turning circle, so don't waste the space by adding a double track main line. If you have ideas on how to better utilize the lost space in the corners, that would be great.
Before it was basically a dog bone, but now I'm going to use a lift out bridge and eliminate the reversing loops from the plans. If you are planning on making up and breaking down trains, another configuration of yard tracks may work better.
I have many hours receiving, sorting, assembling, departing trains from Brittain Yard as designed. The arrangement passed inspection by Byron Henderson and it closely mimics the prototype it represents.
