You'd really have to look at the plans generated for each of the
commands in the functions to be sure. A knee-jerk reaction is to
suggest that that NOT IN might be the core of the problem, but it's
only a guess.
It's a bit tricky to examine the behavior of a parameterized query,
which is what these will all be since they depend on local variables
of the plpgsql function (which are passed as parameters to the main
SQL executor). The basic idea is
PREPARE foo(datatype, datatype, ...) AS SELECT ... $1 ... $2 ...
EXPLAIN ANALYZE EXECUTE foo(value, value)
