Is absorption necessary?

If you charge at 5% you will reach the voltage cutoff at about 100% SOC and can go dire to the float stage. Thanks.

True but it will take a long, long time. The goal of most is to charge as quick as possible up to about 85% SOC.

That is really absorption without the bulk stage.
