Does having map metafiles improve performance of the NMS viewer?

In the NMS Configuration Guide, page 8-4, it mentions the metafile directory:

The metafile directory ($MB_META_HOSTS) contains a binary copy of
the maps that have been built. Whenever possible, the metafile is used
instead of the *.mad files because metafiles are smaller and much faster.


It then states that "The Viewer uses this directory to first search for an appropriate metafile
version of the map to load before trying to load the text version. The binary version improves the
performance of the Viewer loading the map".
