So 16th notes is different for songs with different bpm's

Think about what you are asking.
A sixteenth note is a sixteenth of a beat.
BPM is beats per minute.

Do you see how the time of a sixteenth note might vary under those conditions?

Half notes, quarter notes, sixteenth notes, etc are completely independent of time itself.

I thought this stuff was taught in like the 3rd grade.

You could have a whole note last for minutes or hours on end technically.

So yes, 16th note duration will be different from song to song based on the beats per minute.

I'm pretty sure there is no delay in that song.

EDIT: Or are you talking about the lead part at around 0:42?

Yep thats the part

As already been said, it's entirely dependent of the song's time signature. A 32nd note can be 15 minutes long if you wrote a song with a ridiculous time singature. Like .25bpm
