 Google seems to imply that this is paying the complication time of the jmeter script during
this operation.

Do you mean compilation time?

If so, that is done before the sample is started; sample times include
only the time needed to perform the sample.

That should not be necessary; there must be something else happening here.

Try using a Java sampler. Does the first sample take longer than the next?
What happens if you add a dummy before that?

Are you sure that the Jenkins Performance plugin is measuring samples,
and not JMeter startup time?
