[Avodah] Abaye and Rava

The gemara in chulin (105b) has a series of cases where abaye originally
had a rationalist reason for certain practices (eg handwashing) and Raba
corrected (?) him and gave an esoteric reason. While there’s discussion of
the individual cases in the commentaries, I didn’t see any overarching
discussion of Abaye’s original approach (why?) or his (possible) acceptance
of Raba’s approach. Any citations or thoughts?
