This is a really awesome feature. Thank you for implementing this, hugbug!
I tested this feature and it is working fine.

In my use case I will use this feature for an "instant streaming" of media files.
E.g. I download a 30GB media file with 100 Mbit/s in 45min.
Now I can instantly watch the file without having a waiting time of 45min.

Concerning this use case two questions are arising:
1st: I am using post-process scripts to add downloaded media files to my synology media index.
If I understood correctly the post-process script will not handle the temporary unpacked files.
Which kind of script do I need to add temporary unpacked media files to my synology media index?

2nd: If I understood correctly the temporary unpacked media file will be deleted/moved after finishing download.
Does this means that a streaming of the temporary unpacked media file will be stopped after finishing download since the file has been deleted?
How is it possible to "prevent" the deletion/movement of temporary unpacked media files?

For post-processing scripts there is no difference.

Whether the streaming continues to work after unpack is finished depends on video player software. On my Linux PVR box the player continues playing (moved) file without issues (both the player and nzbget run on the same machine). In my tests on Windows the default media player worked fine whereas VLC stopped playback (both the player and nzbget run on the same machine).
