No, it's not black and white.
On some tracks they will probably need more of the 105kg/more fuel saving but on others the case will be opposite.
I come back to the case of a very fast average speed race - 310km/h. They could do this race with full throttle 100% of the time. The race will take 1h (310km race distance) and consume 100kg of fuel. If you do the race in 20% less time (ie average speed 20% more) you would need 20% less fuel.

The race pace is slower for a variety of the reasons. One of which is the tyres, another is the need to carry all the race fuel.
Apart from Honda I don't think any team needed to save much fuel. Honda has a serious problem with their engine and ERS efficiency.

Why do you think they've upped the fuel limit, even though races will be shorter? I predict an utter disaster on a fuel heavy tracks next year. Hopefully i'm wrong.
Yes, the % full throttle goes up. But consider corner A. This year they might go through at part throttle, 80% max fuel flow rate. Next year they might go full throttle, 100% fuel flow rate and go around at 150km/h.
The fuel flow rate used is increased 25% but the time in the corner is reduced 33%.
