The history is contained in the libvirt source rpm .spec file. The rationale is to support zfs in libvirt [1] (upon which a number of other packages depend).

The zfs & zfs-fuse packages are interchangeable for this new dependency (in libvirt* packages on /sbin/zfs and /sbin/zpool). The easiest way to "interchange" them is dnf swap zfs-fuse zfs or vice versa. Similar is dnf install --allow-erasing zfs (if zfs-fuse is currently installed). Getting the two packages to co-exist is currently a manual build and install to a non-default location sort of exercise (and likely unnecessary for the typical use case where just picking one or the other will suffice).

I don't have an answer to the second part of the question regarding a good performance comparison yet.
