The result is that my Emacs window now starts up quite small in the middle of the screen and the is almost (before the actual content is drawn) resized to a bigger size. But this also makes it appear not centered but rather asymmetrical somewhat left of the center of the screen.

The starting window size can be specified in .Xresources, e.g. :

emacs*geometry: 100x50

That might fix your problem.
