Enclosed here from CIC an answer to the question what is non routine application. Seems first part for PR application but second part for citizenship application.

What is a non-routine application?
Your application may be considered non-routine if:

You asked to change your personal information (name, sex designation, date of birth);
You missed a test, interview, or hearing;
We asked you to submit extra documents, like fingerprints or residence documents; or
After you attended your interview to verify your identity and the originals of your documents, we asked you to come to another interview or hearing.


For citizenship applications only:

You failed a test;
You did not meet the language requirements during your interview (for citizenship applications only);

We were asked to submit finger prints for my wife and I called CIC and asked them the specific question of routine versus non-routine. They said that finger prints does NOT make your application non-routine. It is part of the routine security checks for some applicants and it does not affect your application the same way a Residency Questionnaire does.
You can't trust every call centre agent. The application is non-routine now. See the link below which clearly states about the fingeprints:

On the other hand, fingerprint won't delay the application that much as compared to Residence Questionnaire

There are tons of people who have had FP requests and the delay is insignificant. It definitely does delay the process, but as you mentioned, not as much as an RQ which could delay your application by years.

After fingerprint request, it can take couple of months to see further updates however it still depends upon application to application because every applicant's personal circumstances are different so thus the application.

Good luck !

Seems oath ceremony depends on its availability or how many applicants awaiting oath. Link for availability to ceremony oath in different locations . In my area, no ceremony available these days.
