Yes, Vertico and Corfu apply highlighting lazily. This leads to
significant performance wins. See `vertico--all-completions` in
https://github.com/minad/vertico/blob/main/vertico.el#L243-L279 and

The technique I am using in Vertico and Corfu retains backward
compatibility, such that the strings are returned unmodified by the
completion style. Highlighting is applied lazily by copying the
candidate strings and mutating the copies. For now I am relying on advices.

One could add an optional argument (or dynamically bound variable) to
completion styles which tell the completion style to opt out of copying
the candidates and the highlighting.
