Load order should not matter.

Aha, maybe it's not a question of markers, but rather another case of
Bug#26051 "overlays may make emacs very slow".

(anyway, ansi-color-apply-to-region doesn't set markers per colour
boundary; it's just 1 or 2 markers per call (eshell calls it once per
~4096 bytes))

The question is then whether there is some case where using overlays is
necessary, or is it just a pessimization?  For reference, I took the
text property using definition from man.el (so it at least works for
that case):

    (defun Man-fontify-manpage ()
      [...]
      (let ((ansi-color-apply-face-function
             (lambda (beg end face)
               (when face
                 (put-text-property beg end 'face face))))
