What's the advantage(s) of using a DPM on a decking if the carpenter did a good woodwork underneath it?

Water in the right quantity as an integral component of concrete is as important as the cement used.
No matter how tightly placed your wooden form work is, water will still leak through the joints. The wood itself has a high capacity to soak water.
These will reduce the amount of water available for the complete hydration of the cement in the concrete mix
The nylon we use as DPM serves two purposes namely:
1. Retains water in the concrete mix to ensure complete hydration of cement and proper non-brittle hardening
2. Helps preserve the wooden form work for future use since soaked wood will loose its strength as a result of water-induced fermentation.

How can one estimate the Quantity of iron bars for decking?
The size of your deck will determine the quantity of rebars
While the load coming on the deck will determine the size and number of rebars for the beams.
All these have been predesigned and shown with the bending schedule on your structural drawings
Let a qualified engineer interprete your structural drawings for you and calculate the quantity of the various sizes of rebar and their correct positioning on your deck.
Except you are a civil/structural Engr decking reinforcements is not a DIY affair

=N=3.3m from foundation to decking completion? This is very impressive.

I know someone building a four bedroom duplex right now with same description as this, except he doesn't have an ante room but, has spent almost =N=5m according to him though, his building is longer.

Nice job.
This is a sizable building.
All the cost of construction of the suspended floor (decking) is 3.3M
This does not include monies spent from foundation through DPC, Lintel to Deck-level block work.
