I figured FODMAPS are the cause of SIBO, acid reflux and constipation. Am I right to make this generalization or could there be other reasons/causes for the combination of symptoms?

I would disagree with that generalization. The main thing with FODMAPs is that they cause gas, not the symptoms you describe.

I don't buy the line about starch being an irritant to the gut. I'm not the only one:
Chris Kresser has a great article about this as well:
Soluble fiber: gentle to the gut; think cooked carrots, sweet potato, parsnips.
Insoluble fiber: harsh on gut; leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts.
When I was dealing with candida, at my worst, I was avoiding vinegar, mushrooms, starch and all fruit. While I'm not 100% sure I've killed it all off, my worst symptoms are gone and I eat fruit if I feel like it, and I sure as shit am not going up my sweet potatoes again!
