Do you know who is inserting the delay? It looks like rgmii will be
passed to the PHY. So there are few possibilities here:

The MAC is adding the delay. Not recommended, but does work. In that
case, your DT is correct.

The bootloader or strapping configures the PHY to insert the
delay. The PHY driver then ignores 'rgmii' and leaves the
configuration alone. This will break sometime in the future when
somebody fixes the PHY driver to actually set the PHY to rgmii as
requested. In this case, both the PHY driver and your DT is broken.

The board itself inserts the delays by having long tracks. In this
case, your DT is correct.

It would be good to understand this, just in case it is the second
