... for one test case, on one platform, with a pretty strong bias to the
fully-cached state since you ran the test multiple times consecutively.

Past experience has generally been that an explicit sort is quicker,
so you'll have to pardon me for suspecting that this case may be
atypical.  Is the table nearly in order by pkey, by any chance?

Feel free to propose better cost equations.
