The Cookie Manager is used for Managing Cookies, see:

Ditto Cache Manager:

Is the Cache Manager added as a child of the thread group?

Are you sure this is repeatable (and not just a one-off occurrence)?

If the Cache Manager detects a match, it will add If-Last-Modified and
If-None-Match conditional headers to the request. This will speed up
the response if true, as the response will be much smaller.

I would expect the Cache Manager to have less effect when added as a
child of a single HTTP sampler, because it will only apply to that
sampler, whereas when added to the thread group it will apply to all
HTTP samplers, so should allow more cache hits to occur.

Use the Tree View Listener to check the responses.
