I think it depends on which parts of the system are being used. For
example I've just tried your experiment with the classic theme and the
number of queries (14) stays constant regardless of the number of

I also added comments to each post one at a time and the number still
stayed constant.

It may be that you have a plug-in or possibly a feature of Wordpress
which isn't used in the classic theme turned on which is making extra
queries per post.

So, for example, a 'word count' plugin or a 'more like this' plugin
might do extra queries per post.

You would need to do some mored investigation before you could
determine that it was core wordpress which was causing the extra
