Yes, now the time is known. It is pretty much the next second after the name doesn't get any bids and time lapses. So, they can send 10 requests, 2-3 per second and be assured to win, if in fact being next door is factor. But I doubt that gives them that much advantage. There must be additional tweak in their favor, as it seems empirically every name that doesn't emerge into closeout goes 100% of time to HD and that shouldn't be possible if things were as fair and square as GD claims.
