I checked the downloads, e.g here http://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05-rc1/lantiq/xrx200/
and saw that only one image per subtarget is built.
As the image-creation is tied to the profiles, the buildbot probably need to build for each profile.

John: Do you know if it is possible to add a "generic" profile to build all images in one run?
Or why it is necessary to select a specific model for the build?

Again a really nice list of new features!
