If I understand (partially) how it works, more of the process could be completed, and with more likelihood of predicting the final results, before the absentee ballots show up if they weren't using this particular (IRV) voting system.

Perhaps, but it sounds like now the NYC mayoral election is mostly just waiting on the absentee ballots. They talk about the delays spurring possible distrust of the system, “even though the timeline for counting absentee ballots is not a function of the ranked-choice process." https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/29/nyregion/adams-garcia-wiley-mayor-ranked-choice.html
