For most of the Sun, the polarity reversal is not delayed
For most of the Sun, the polarity reversal is not delayed, because the magnetic field lines that flow outside of the plasma stream, propagate near the speed of light. The fast fields evidently don't reach all the way down to the poles. The poles would be dominated by the high-density plasma flow.
The slow plasma flow, in the high-density plasma stream, in comparison with the magnetic propagation speed that affects the central region of the Sun, is also responsible for the shape of the sunspot cycles as we see them evident increasingly.
