That doesn't sound like a lot to me, but instead of guessing around,
let's just check the actual facts.
Does "xfs_bmap -a" for the kind of files you are deleting show any
extents? If it doesn't the output will look like:
# xfs_bmap -a internal
internal: no extents
if it has any it will look like:
# xfs_bmap -a external
