You should always rely on the docs with the version you are using. 
Apparently, setLineSpacingMode is obsolete.

Set the desired mode as your default for text frames. I think that left 
unspecified, this will be the mode for a script-created text frame.

Use a style with your desired mode, then apply that style with the script.
