If you select one of these folige:

A stone and some folige in one object.

As you can see the devs used some folige in the same object before they in the retail made them different objects. If you know what I mean.

But it's always good with new stuff!

Though I think it's not just faster (remember they had an app to automatically place foliage) - I think it might have been intended to put less pressure on the engine, by having fewer total objects and the same "detail". It's a method that's been talked about in modern mods for Tres.. though at a bit different level. For example, making a solid canopy object for many trees, and then a bunch of trunks copied around..
