Late Start Netherlands v NZ QF1

Does anyone know what the official cause of the late start in Netherlands v NZ QF1 yesterday?

I have been told that the Netherlands wanted time to prepare a defence. However that does not seem reasonable assuming the systems were lodged in time.

A fifteen minute lateness should attract an 11 IMP penalty according to the conditions of contest. Lateness being not being at the table and ready to play on time. The penalty for 15 minutes is 1 IMP plus 1 IMP for every minute or part minute after 5 minutes.

A penalty was assessed for slow play but that should be separate from the problem with the late start.
