VR Stitching and Editing can get completed to various levels of "seam-less-ness". The footage seen on Go Pro's website has gone through extensive VFX production to get the standard shown on their videos. As a rule of thumb, for 1 minute of VR video, they allocate 1 week of post production.  Click here to view GoPro's trailer video for the Omni, this video took 4 weeks of post. Keep in mind though that this video contains a moving camera array and has multiple patches and compositing notions. A simpler VR video, such as a stationary camera, will not require this extensive type of post production work.
AMPLIFICATION:

Any Objects closer to the rig than 1m may require a complete 3D rebuild and animation in order to be seamless. Directors should be mindful of this when scripting VR story boards.

Below is a sample video of what you can expect along the stitching process...
