Not often. I'm not sure I understand the point of the question. The question in the OP presumes that condition exists: call a time-out or take a 5 yard penalty. It doesn't matter how frequently it occurs.

ETA: Actually, I misread your question. I thought you were asking how often the condition presents itself. But I guess you're asking how often they would call a timeout vs. not call a timeout. Well, from experience, I'd have to say they'd call a timeout close to 100% of the time. But I still don't understand the point of the question. Are you asserting they're correct because they do call the timeout almost universally?
