There's some *slight* processing:
- a check that it's valid JSON.
- removing insignificant whitespace.
- optionally: the HTML-escaping described in the documentation of 
json.Marshal <https://golang.org/pkg/encoding/json/#Marshal> unless you're 
using a json.Encoder with this feature disabled.
but all of that's just a single pass over the string representation while 
copying it to the output 
<https://golang.org/src/encoding/json/indent.go#L15>. There's no 
unmarshal+re-marshal step if that's what you're worried about.

Oh, and if you use json.MarshalIndent() or json.Encoder.SetIndent() there's 
a separate indentation pass, but even that's still just string processing.
