Thank you very much for your efforts!
I took a look at these tests. One thing catch my eyes. You warmup
database using pgbench run. Did you consider using pg_prewarm instead?
SELECT sum(x.x) FROM (SELECT pg_prewarm(oid) AS x FROM pg_class WHERE
relkind IN ('i', 'r') ORDER BY oid) x;
In my experience pg_prewarm both takes less time and leaves less variation
