I do not claim that I understand GIS but I have a feeling that precincts are
designed for a fast ROI access. From

"A precinct is a collection of code-blocks representing some finite spatial
extent at some resolution."

Probably gathering the surrounding precincts is unnecessary. Author of
Kakadu seems to dislike tiles and it is no wonder that with Kakadu precincts
perform well even with archived documents
