The file size histogram has always had a peak near very small files, with a long tail stretching to the right. Sure, the peak is shifting to the right, but it's still well below the current block size of 4K.
And as for fsck time... Some data structures, such as block bitmaps and inode tables are sized in proportion to the total filesystem capacity, not the number of files you currently have. So some component of fsck time is proportional to capacity, and some is proportional to space-in-use.
