I see a 5-fold slow-down with case-fold-search, not a 30-fold as you

It sounds like the difference is between buffer-local variables and
global variables.  Setting the former will potentially loop over all
the buffers and set the value for every buffer that doesn't have a
local value.  See data.c around line 1517.  How many buffers do you
have in the "slow" version?  I have 230.
