How widespread is the practice of having an aveil daven on rosh chodesh up to, but not including, yishtabach? What is halachically gained by this practice? (During a regular shacharit as well?)

From Nefesh Hachayim loose translations – addressed to whom?
Chapter 3:8: “With my eyes I saw one place some men who were habituated in this significant time until they almost forgot the time for mincha as set by Chazal. To the contrary, they established in their hearts out of habituation, like a set law, that mincha was primarily after the stars come out”
Chapter 9:1: “And thus in these generations, due to our great sins, it is the opposite, the high are lowered, that many have made their primary set learning most days only in books of awe and morals, in their saying this is what man should always be immersed in in this world, because they light the soul and then his heart will surrender and be broken from its desires and be straight with good ethical characteristics. And the crown of torah is left in a neglected corner”
