Would replacing millisecond with seconds still help query faster?

I was getting lots of timeout errors so I was trying to improve query speed and came across this thread: Query much faster against timestamp in seconds than milliseconds
I tried using seconds for timestamp in my environment and it is not helping. it is mentioned in the thread that querying would be based on a tree in the next major release. I believe this "next release" is the version I am using (6.2.4). so I am wondering would replacing millisecond with seconds still help?

Major improvements were made to how numeric field are handled in elasticsearch 5 and later. I would not expect any relevant performance improvement from changing the precision.

thank you!
