No, it means that we spent a total of 53.5 seconds executing that plan
node and its children. There's no direct way to determine how that was
interleaved with the execution of a peer plan node. In the particular
case here, since that seqscan is the outer child of a hash join, you
can infer that all the time charged to the inner child (the Hash node
and its children) happened first, while we were building the hashtable,
which is then probed for each row of the outer relation.

Doesn't look that bad to me. The net time charged to the HashJoin node
is 186107.210 - 53597.555 - 112439.592 = 20070.063 msec. In addition it
would be reasonable to count the hashtable build time, which evidently
is 112439.592 - 111855.510 = 584.082 msec. So the hashtable build took
about 10 msec/row, in addition to the data fetching; and then the actual
join spent about 3 microsec per outer row, again exclusive of obtaining
those rows. The table build seems a bit slow, maybe, but I don't see a
problem with the join speed.
