While there is no blackout the view is not real time but 1/12 sec behind.

EVF refresh in 12fps but it doesn't means the view is always 1/12s behind.
(1/12s is the Worst-Case Scenario)

Sony admits the view at 12fps is not real time but is a view of the captured image. Because of the mechanical shutter 1/12 sec delay is the minimum delay, not maximum

Because EVF display the captured image immediately and refresh it after next image is captured, the delay can be very short to max. 1/12s.

That is possible with the first image captured but when the shutter closes there is no image, the shutter opens, the image captured and sent to the viewfinder. This happens 12 times a second which means the image must always be at least 1/12 sec behind.

Look at the picture, not the pixels
Misuse of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography.

its the same with the new A9, the difference is the human eye can only see 20 fps so looks "live"
