[nafex] Grafting/Time to fruiting

Grafting question...

Do all grafts of scions from mature trees, regardless of rootstock used,
speed the rate of fruiting of the new grafted tree?

I believe I have read that the scion has an internal clock that instructs
it that it is older, so in addition to size control, grafting offers fruit

If this is true, is there a rule of thumb for various grafted fruit
trees? (realizing some varieties will be sooner, and others later)
