This isn’t too surprising. As the game only narrows down the “answer” as you guess, on average words that have fewer unique letters will stay in the solution space longer than words with more unique letters.
I’ve found a fair number of 5-guess paths. Haven’t found a 4-guess path yet, though I’m sure there are some out there. Note that you can pretty much force which vowels are going to be in the solution word by guessing something with all the other vowels as your first guess.
So if I understand the rules of Absurdle correctly, it’s possible to play a “perfect” game of Wordle where the player makes no mistakes or poor word choices, but yet just through bad luck, their Wordle path will duplicate a typical Absurdle game and result in a loss?
