Can't really answer from any official knowledge however with all the new advancements I am sure there are ways to somewhat stabilize the lifeboats in high seas. I am fairly sure that the capability is much better to lower the boats in higher seas then in the past.
As for the rolling motion it will be more pronounced on higher decks as you get farther from the center of gravity. Additionally you would have that much further to lower them. Interesting question though.
