its seems really strange to deliberately alter the texture and make it 3 times bigger file size

But one is PNG and the other is JPG :?: FILESAVER must use a lossless compression format.

Side by side lxs and cfg render the same so all good, when I did my original test it was a glossy material and the worn wood seemed a lot closer to the darker texture
It still seems odd to me but hey ho on we go lol

You will have to split the gif into individual frames with an external program.

Support for videos/animated gifs could be added to LuxCore. However it might introduce a further dependency because we would need to extract frames from the videos, something like FFMPEG could be used.

IS this can slow any part of the rendering process ? something like long compilation time.

No, I don't think so.
