It is fast. It depends on what tests you run. For inserting/deleting, maildir can be faster. For searching, mbox is faster.

I doubt Dovecot uses
mbox; it probably converted the mail to maildir or UoW was already using
maildir. mbox is a broken and obsolete mailbox format; and very slow.

dovecot uses mbox, and other formats. It has its own format, which is a mixture of maildir and mbox. It is your choice what to use.
