I do SQL postprocessing too, and I have never found a way to prevent
mythfilldatabase from rescheduling.  Fortunately, the problem of
recordings starting immediately is not one I normally get, but it
would be nice to not have to worry about it.  But I think that would
require a patch to mythfilldatabase - probably not a difficult one
