Svgalib doesn't load any scale filter, make sure you don't mess-up with mplayer's options. It is mplayer which applies scale filters, only if told so or required, and it scales by hardware, if the vo driver supports such scaling, if not, it scales by software.

Let's be clear: the vo vesa driver uses by necessity software color space conversion to RGB for any YUV frame. It can't use any yv12 mode as you say, so what you wrote above is meaningless.
