What nonsense. There is nothing special with extended partitions.
Partitions influence the logical view on the disk, but not I/O.

(But the outer rim of a disk is faster than the inner side.)

Moreover, you report elapsed times
0:27, 0:22, 0:24, 0:28, 0:21, 0:24, 0:27
where is this performance hit?
