I should probably just go look at the code at this point, though.
Or the website:

"A special optimisation is made so that applicatins which scan for id3v1 tags do not have to wait for the whole file to be transcoded before reading the tag. This dramatically speeds up such applications."

That actually sort of hints that the v2 info might not be optimized yet, but it should be possible, because they only support CBR encoding, so they can calculate exactly how big a file is as soon as they know the length of the audio.
