sRGB stores nonlinear color. You write linear into gl_FragColor, but stored is nonlinear. You just don't do the conversion. Performance impact of a gamma conversion prior to writing to gl_FragColor is neglible. What isn't neglible is the effects of blending, which you don't mention. Blending in nonlinear space produces incorrect results. However the conversion with the sRGB format is done inside the blending stage, and therefore blending is done in linear space and only after blending it's serialized to nonlinear space.
