[Android][Gradle][Asset Bundles][AAB] Loading Asset Bundles takes a lot more time with AAB compared to APK builds



Reproduction steps:
1. Open the ZIP project
2. "Build Settings..." -> enable "Build App bundle (Google Play)"
3. "Window" -> "Build Player" -> "Build Player"
4. Once the build finishes and the .aab file is created open the CMD window
5. "java -jar ./bundletool-all-0.10.2.jar build-apks --connected-device --bundle "File/Path/To/.AAB" --output out.apks --adb ~/Android/sdk/platform-tools/adb"
6.1. On Mac: Write "unzip out.apks -f ./out" in the Console
6.2. On PC: change the extension of the ".apks" file to ".zip" and extract the "base-master.apk" and "base-armeabi_v7a.apk" files
7. "~/Android/sdk/platform-tools/adb install-multiple base-armeabi_v7a.apk base-master.apk"
8. Launch the App

Expected Result: Initial App loading time should not be greater than 10 Seconds
Actual Result: Initial App loading time is very long, can look like a freeze but with the sound on

Reproduced with: 2018.4.0f1

The issue was fixed for .apk files but appeared on .aab files
