Would there be any CPU gains by disabling xpack-security and xpack.transport.ssl in Elasticsearch 7.17


We run our ES Cluster in a completely closed on-prem Kubernetes environment wherein we do not expose ES ports for any external access (hence no security-hazard)

In this case, I wanted to understand if disabling xpack.security as well as xpack.transport.ssl would yield any CPU-usage gains ? On many instances, I have observed the SSL-handling code-path appears in hot_threads output with higher CPU-usage.
