I'm not sure what you're asking.

If you are flying on final approach you use whatever inputs you need to maintain the centreline.

Half standard rate turns are usually used for manoeuvring (ie holding, procedure turns, timed turns (no gyro) by faster aircraft where a full rate 1 turn would require an excessive bank angle.

But again, on final approach - just fly the aeroplane.

I believe half standard rate turns are used on final during a GCA or Surveillance  Approach .

Along with timed a approach from a hold, DF steers from a FSS (when a FSS was located about every where) and the occasional request from an approach control asking if you could accept an ASR approach for controller training. Any PPL I trained did a DF steer and all instrument students did a least one ASR approach partial panel. My one and only timed approach from a hold for the ILS at KLAN in the non radar days and I was in the stack with brand new rating. Maybe out dated but they all got you where you needed to be.
