I just discovered something I thought I would share. I have the majority of my raw images off on a NAS. I'm adding Job Identifiers and it was going slow. e.g. if I had a set of 700 images for the same job, it would take so long that I would just wonder off and start watching YouTube. I had the remote NAS mounted on my desktop at the time so LR could find the RAW images if it needed to even though I didn't see why it would.

Out of curiosity, I unmounted the NAS so now LR doesn't have access to the RAW images and the update to the metadata is pretty much instant as it should be. I guess, for whatever reason, LR is going out and at least checking to see if it can access the RAW image every time the metadata is changed. So... I guess the moral of the story is don't mount your NAS unless you really need to such as for printing or exporting.

Do you have ‘Automatically write changes to XMP’ enabled? That would explain it.
