This way is, IMO, the crude way to do this. Turn SELinux off, if you chose

If you do this, are you still paying the performance penalty but with no
security gain?

Depends on what you mean by "performance penalty".
One measure of performance is RAM utilization. If SELinux is
built into the distro, then it eats RAM regardless of whether
it be "enforcing". Furthermore, some of the code in it
gets executed, no matter what. Defects in that code
are always waiting for the circumstances to be right (or
wrong, one might say) to be triggered.
