I tried to run your test program with xtrace.
And the trace is very different in both case. Xlib is doing more stuff,
like checking for bigfont extension etc.

Anyway, I wonder if the difference is not in xcb_open_font() and
XLoadQueryFont(); I think they don't do the same thing and work on
the *really* same font.
