I'm not saying Darcy's opinion was correct or even rational, merely that it was sincere. His claim of being sincere but mistaken is consistent throughout, and by the end of the book, there's no reason to disbelieve him.
If Bingley wanted to marry Jane based on the belief that Jane loved him, and Jane didn't actually love him, and Darcy was somehow aware of both those facts, then I think the proper thing to do would be for him to tell Bingley. What Bingely might choose to do about that isn't Darcy's business, but good friends don't knowingly allow each other to be deceived in matters as important as marriage. And it's as likely as not that Bingley asked him for his opinion - was he supposed to lie?
