Seriously? Listen again. The Wizard has one of the funkiest beats I've ever heard. War Pigs has killer grooves, and so does Hand of Doom, and so does Fairies Wear Boots. Or the chorus of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Hole in the Sky. The bass work in N.I.B. Sabra Cadabra. A National Acrobat has some incredibly funky parts. I mean, outside of maybe Iron Man and Sweet Leaf, I'd say it's endemic.
