I tried both methods in the node.cfg file with little to no noticeable performance impact. I'm definitely using CPU affinity.

There is no difference.  The whole lb_procs thing arose because we used to have people with huge node.cfg files because they were running a lot of workers.  Adding the lb_procs mechanism gave them a short hand to not have to configure each and every worker.
