Your assumption is correct.

That is impossible because it is undecidable in general. Where does
parameter construction start in general? Not even a human being could
answer that question.

W.r.t. your problem: I doubt that parameter construction is a
bottleneck in your code if all the construction is as easy as in the
case you showed. Maybe a profiler would give you more insight.
