Yes, "W" is everything between having read the request and logging the 
request after having send the response. So especially it includes 
forwarding in proxy or mod_jk and waiting/reading the response from the 
origin server.

You should add response duration logging to the httpd server access log 
(%D) and to the origin server log file, if you want to track the 
performance of the latter. mod_jk allows you to additionally log origin 
server response times as observed by the httpd web server in the httpd 
access log.
