There are different types of post-layout verification:
one of them is to see if the changes made to the netlist by high fan-
out net and clock-tree synthesis did not change functionality. This can
be checked by simulating the netlist after these steps and doing LVS
between this netlist and the layout. So no parasitic extraction is
Other type is verify timing closure, there one need parasitics if one
wants to verify max. operating frequency. This is nice to have but not
strictly necessary for this tape-out. For hold violations the netlist
without parasitics is the worst case.

The cocotb setup has been done in git repo soc-cocotb-sim:
