Print Time Decreases with Non Standard Print Angle

It occurred to me that when my parts need 100% infill the print time often decrease if I place the part at a 45 degree angle on the bed. This is because the infill stroke then becomes straight lines rather than diagonal which is much faster to print. There are some infill patterns that if thought about first would also speed up print time by placing the part at a different angle on the bed.

On this part, 55 minutes turns to 47 minutes

I wonder two things though,

1) Am I inadvertently making my prints with less strength ?

2) Am I missing a "Optimize Print Time" function in PrusaSlicer, and if not why is this not a feature ?

You can change the fill angle in the slicer without physically rotating the part.
