My understanding is that on the 6500/7600 series the IP RIB Update process also contains the prebuilt FIB to be pushed into CEF.
I may be wrong on that but I don't think so.  BGP-SD definitely does not push the routes into the IP RIB Update process.

BGP-SD won't reduce the RIB memory tax, but it will certainly help to trim the FIB if there is pressure there.
