Actually it will because the wastegate will not begin to open so soon (with single port control, wastegates tend to begin to open at ~1/3 of the target pressure).
The stiffer the spring, the sooner it will wake up. This is the whole idea behind dual-chamber control, just with latter the wastegate spring stiffness is literally reduced when boost target has been reached.
