strange idea.
in early days, while we used libcss directly, key decoding was done
only once, at opening the vob file. nowdays we use the libdvdread
library, so key control is out of our scope. ask the libdvdread guys...

but i don't think they are so silly to decode same key at each sector.
if it's slow for you (I see no problems here), it must have different reason.
