It's certainly possible, if the network round trip from client to server
is slow. I do not think offhand that there is any material advantage
for the processing within the server (assuming you've wrapped the whole
thing into one transaction in both cases); if anything, the
concatenated-statement case is probably a bit worse inside the server
because it will transiently eat more memory. But network latency or
client-side per-command overhead could well cause the results you see.
