When talking quiesce snapshot the Virtual machine file system is quiesced , so you will have a crash consistent backup during the receovery.

one reason I can think off is since the quiesce snapshot takes time of there is lot of iops so there will be a rpo of 15 min than a regular snapshot which is faster as it does not do a quiesce .

hope this helps.
