While that is certainly true, the comparison, as unfair as it is, resulted from the fact that most of our microservices were implemented in some kind of JVM framework. Naturally, we were interested in the performance-claims by just "changing the runtime/build".
Rewriting the services in a new language was proposed, but ultimately unanimously dropped, because we rely heavily on EE-Frameworks.
It would have been much more work than just switching the runtime to quarkus.

Yes, this is why I understand the case for compiled java code too. I agree: brownfield always has backward compatibility as a top requirement.
