    Yes and no.

    Performance and memory usage is quite largely affected by how spread out your users are.
    If they're spread out, they keep more chunks active, thus use more memory, cpu and io.
    Using multiple worlds makes it easier for users to spread out significantly, 2 users in different worlds will never share chunks, thus be a larger burden on the server.

    So number of players matters, but how spread out they are matters even more.
    Multiple worlds make players spread out more.

    Good job on setting a world border though. This at least keeps player within certain areas and prevent them from spawning too many new chunks.
    (the latter is also something that causes lag for a brief moment)
