Not necessarily. There is a bit more functionality...but not all things are services. Like ability to join a domain. It's not as if this is an application or service which runs that allows you to do that. The inclusion of this feature won't put any noticeable load on the box.
Same thing with BitLocker....if you use it...then it would have an impact. But the simple fact that it's there within a menu allowing you to run it doesn't necessarily have any impact on performance.
I'm sure somebody could prove a difference with a benchmark or a critical look at task manager...but real world noticeable difference will be impossible to find between Home Premium, Pro, Enterprise and Ultimte.
