So what am I looking at in the film? Are they full cg heads? Smoothed out projection of the actors onto a captured performance?
Yes.

Ian talks about de-aging the DeNiro:

1700+ vfx shots in the film, including CG windshields when they are driving. No keyframe animation. No tracking markers on any of the actors at any time.

I really hope Scorsese tackles Sinatra next. He was discussing that film with Pablo before they made The Irishman so hopefully they make that one.

Now it's more clear..Thanks Shane for posting the articles. So they are actually fully cg heads of the actors and , if i understood correctly, sometimes also the shoulders?
Yes sometimes they did body parts depending on the shot.
