Resigning at very end

I've had several opponents who resigned just before I would've bought the last Province, most recently right after I played my Treasures and just as I was moving my mouse to buy the Province.  What is the point of resigning at that point?  It makes sense to resign if you're too far behind to catch up and the game's still not close to ending, but in that case it seems rather pointless

I would assume they were just eager to get the next game started as fast as possible. When you’re playing a lot of games in a row, a few seconds saved at the end can feel like a lot.

I've been in gaming communities where people would do this even though the software actually made it take slightly longer.  So I wouldn't rule out the irrational angles.
