I believe that it is because the update (unnecessarily in my opinion) 
does a

chattr -R +S /var/lib/imap /var/spool/imap

So it will largely depend on how many files you have in /var/spool/imap 
and how fast your disks are.

I can understand doing this for a new install, but I do not understand 
doing it for an upgrade.
