As a rally organizer myself, I can give you my guess. Timing is generally a lower priority than safety. For safety reasons, who's in and who's out, who's stuck out there in the dark and who's already back, kicking back at the bar, is pretty important, so that kind of information is transferred over all the radios and comms. The guys back at HQ monitor those same comms. So even though they might wait for hours for paper logs or cards with times, they'll usually know DNFs as soon as anybody knows about them.

So it has everything to do with the different methods of information movement for the different 'classes' of data.

That's the way we do it for RallyMoto events here in the States, it would seem, given your observations, that the same reasoning fits in for the ASO.
