Curious about Schedule Change PHL-PHX-OGG

My flight was changed 90 days out - first leg now leaves PHL 10 minutes later and arrives at PHL 10 minutes sooner (so the flight was shortened by 20 minutes). Same equipment (A321). PHX-OGG leg is also shortened but the return legs were both lengthened. I recall the same thing happening last year, was wondering if they use some type of moving average of arrival times or factor in the jet stream since the length of flight is shorter flying west and longer flying east.
