Using blender from the command line e.g. blender -b I see Time: 02:11.63 (Saving: 00:00.52)at the finished output.

What for is this part: (Saving: 00:00.52)?

I assume it is the time to write the render result to disk, but --cycles-print-stats should give you a more detailed readout.

The value is printed by the function do_write_image_or_movie that you can find in pipeline.c

There are no comments indicating what it should be, but it is the time it takes to print the "Time:..." part of the message plus the time it takes to execute any callbacks.

(I think that's a bug, but that's what it's actually printing.)
