No, there will be one query. This acts against the lucene search index.
For each result (= row = node) based on the search index, the node be
loaded (= fetched from the persistence manager). This needs to be done not
only for returning the node, but also for checking ACLs (i.e. if it can be
put in the result, because the user has read access). Note that the search
results do not store the results in any way other than using the plain JCR
nodes - the Row interface is just a wrapper around the Node in
Jackrabbit's search implementation.

That last step can be done lazily - i.e. only a number X of results is
fetched at the beginning, the rest will be fetched when you iterate that
far through the results (see resultFetchSize [0]).

Now for the nodes itself: if you use a bundle persistence manager, nodes
are stored as "node bundle" which consist of all properties (except for
larger binaries in the data store). Thus if a node is fetched from the
persistence manager, it will already have all properties in-memory.
