Does compiling nginx with “--with-debug” option reduce performance even when not enabling debug level?

I want to build nginx with the debug options and use it in production.
But the instructions provided here: do not say if it will have
performance issues even when I DON'T enable debug level logging.

The reason to build nginx with debug options is to quickly debug any issues
that come up in production rather than patching nginx after building it
again. It reduces one painful step.
