I'm not going to defend the 'efficiency' of Haskell's String
formatting/parsing, but ...

What is your evidence that number/String is a concern here? It's all
happening in-memory.

Whereas sending whatever to SQL then needs putting it to disk, which is
orders-of-magnitude slower. (Or is this an in-memory database?)

This thread has already devoted more cycles to speculation than you're
going to reclaim through number formatting, methinks.
