Only ets:select_delete/2 or ets:delete/1 take that code path.

If you have multiple other processes doing reads/writes into the table at
the same time as you are doing deletion in it, then yes it may help speed

I would use tracing, either call_time or just plain ordinary call+return
tracing together with timestamps to see if any suspect ets function take a
long time to complete and then from there try to figure out why.
