Did you look at the giant latency spikes at the end of the test run I submitted the graph for? I wanted to nail down what was causing those before worrying about the startup timing.
If you are still worried: if you run the very same command without throttling and measure the same latency, does the same thing happens at the end? My guess is that it should be "yes". If it is no, I'll try out pgbench-tools.
