On 11.4 and 12.2, loading the initrd takes just a handful of seconds (if
at all), barely noticeable compared to the remaining boot process.

Compare the sizes, I'm pretty sure this will shed some light on the issue.

Yep, your right. In our configuration, the initrd of
11.4 is 11MB
12.2 is 17MB
12.3 is 32MB

Hm, well then I guess there is nothing to be done about this delay?
Is grub2 any faster than grub loading the initrd?
