There are definitely FPU calls in the loop.

Beside the trigonometric calls, there are 2 only unsupported calls types:

FINTRZ (rounding)
FMOVECR (move rom constants)

I've checked the rounding code and it looks complicated to handle all the cases.
If the values are small, provided that FPCR is properly configured I was thinking about

Code:
    move.l  d0,-(a7)
    fmove  fpcr,-(a7)
    fmove  #$10,fpcr
    fmove.l fp0,d0
    fmove.l d0,fp1
    fmove (a7)+,fpcr
    move.l  (a7)+,d0
not bad compiler. There were never a 040 version (there were, but the one on the CD is unusable). 040 uses 020 version which uses integer arithmetic as Toni guessed.

And yes, the on-chip FPU calls are not that performant, which explains that they decided not to waste silicon and go software instead. Depending on the application, interpolation tables may be enough.

btw thanks Toni for the winuae beta. Is there a new beta downloadable? only got b15 which is one week old.
