First of all--impressive driving and lap times for only having 16 track days under your belt.

Your data overlay is informative. While you achieved a slightly higher max speed at several points on the track with the supercharger setup, you consistently maintained higher speeds through the slow sections/corners with the naturally aspirated setup. Maybe this has to do with what you mentioned earlier--that throttle response feels more linear and easier to modulate with the NA setup--so it's easier to maintain momentum in those slow sections. The supercharger runs look more point-n-squirt in nature. (This is just my guess at interpreting your data. I'm by no means a pro, either, only having 25 or so track days under my belt.)

Forum member arter is running an ESS 535 supercharger on his M3 and he frequents the track. Maybe he can offer some of his insights as well.
