This may be TPM hardware dependent. As I understand it ...

A TPM is permitted to run it's self tests in the background after an
Init (cold boot) , but it's not required to do so.

A TPM that does not - that waits until one of the self test commands is
issued - will appear to take longer to initialize.

In fact, it's not taking longer. It's just waiting for some software
to issue a self test command, and will wait forever.
