Yes, it is the time for handshaking the connection to the origin, not the proxy, server. It's the same code for both HTTP versions.

The question is then if the connection gets reused in your setup as you think it should, or if a new connection with the need to re-authenticate at the proxy is done. That would be my suspicion here.
