Sorry, I really don't have a clue.  2.5 does have a different mailboxes.db format, so it's a bit more CPU intensive.  The real massive win for CPU usage is going to come with reverse ACLs:

But to get there, we need to solve reverse ACLs for groups.  I did ask about it here:

But then didn't follow up to add group reverse ACL support in Cyrus, so reverse ACLs are broken if you're using groups.
