In my conversations with LA based facilities catering to television finishing, that mastering at 4K is an additional 25%-30% more budget wise, but would be at last 100% or more if they had to do a 4K master down the road. This is due to additional cost of archival retrieval from all different service providers, and trying to remember why some things were done a certain way for some processes (mainly VFX), etc. It was also noted that the budget increase was when working with R3D and XAVC - other 4K formats, even ProRes are big files and the costs is in moving them, storing them, etc.

But you will see more 4K finishing because it is just easier to do it now when you look at what it takes to do it later.
