Trying it out myself it occurred to me that what you're possibly running into is that full bar rests need to occupy full bars. I haven't checked the docs on that matter but I'd bet that's the reason. If you change your R1*1/4 o r1*1/4 you'll get a whole rest. It won't be centered without some extra adjustments, though.

Perhaps you could fake the first "measure" of the left hand with something like:

 s4*1/4 r1*1/8 s4*1/4 d2*1/4 d d a g a  c  b1*1/4 a  c2*1/4

I tried this and it looks about centered.

  I have found a peculiar thing concerning multi measure rests. In trying to use
R1 to center a full rest in a partial bar of a piece the rest disappears when R1
is used as R1*1/4 in order to create the correct duration of the rest. Below is the relevant snippet.
\version "2.12.0"

global = {
  \key c \major
  \time 3/4

right = \relative c'' {
  \override Staff.TimeSignature #'style = #'mensural
 \partial 4*1
a4*1/4 g f g \bar":" a2*1/4 a b c b1*1/4 a g2*1/4 f1*1/4 e2*1/4

left = \relative c' {
  \override Staff.TimeSignature #'style = #'mensural
 R1*1/4 d2*1/4 d d a g a  c  b1*1/4 a  c2*1/4

\score {
    \new PianoStaff \with {
      instrumentName = "Organ"
    } <<
      \new Staff = "right"\right
      \new Staff = "left"  \left  >> >> }
