Metadata missing on startup

This question seems to be in a similar vein to a different application, but I have more than just "random"

My config is similar to theirs:

    - type: container
        - /var/log/containers/*.log
      exclude_files: [<some excludes>]
        - add_kubernetes_metadata:
            host: ${NODE_NAME}
            in_cluster: true
            - logs_path:
                logs_path: "/var/log/containers/"

        hosts: ["....svc.cluster.local:<SOME_PORT>"]

I have tried a couple of variations including adding an in memory buffer, but to no avail. It seems as if the processor is not loading info into the cache before being considered ready and so no information is loaded.
This seems like almost an antipattern suggestion, but is there a way to force the processor to some sort of initial startup before processing any events. As it stands it seems as though messages are just tossed through without container or pod data, both of which are readily available.
