This is due to how ncurses handles escape sequences. From the manpage:

"While interpreting an input escape sequence, [a timer is set] while
waiting for the next character. [...] The purpose of the timeout is to
differentiate between sequences received from a function keyand those
typed by a user."

I think Vim uses termcap instead of ncurses and thus does not inherit this
