This means if you are including a library like jQuery via your ScriptManager on your masterpage that any script using jQuery in ContentPlaceHolders above the ScriptManager placement will fail.

Odd, isn't it? You'd think that ScriptManager would be the one control that Microsoft would allow to be placed outside the form or simply render it's contents in head tags.
