Okta Rate Limiting Recovery?

I experienced a high load to an okta login path last week that led to 429 responses.
The okta rate limiting seems to have continued for a full two hours past the end of the load.
I watched the rate limiting headers reset and be depleted minute after minute during that time, which was confusing considering the requests had stopped, and only this behavior prevented access to the site.

Can someone point me to documentation on the Okta rate limiting recovery behavior?
