Great question. There is actual basement membrane and podocyte destruction seen when amyloid fibrils are deposited. Thus I would favor your second hypothesis as true: that proteinuria develops from "leaky" glomeruli.

Here are 2 classic references for additional reading:

1) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/6478658/

2) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/7216218/?i=3&from=/6478658/related
