If you tuck your legs tighter when you roll you can come up faster. It can also be your foot placement, like if you land flat footed on both feet at the same time it'll take longer to get up

I meant if you come out of the roll with both feet flat footed at the same time, not the landing of the jump

That's good advice, and I think you're right on the ball with the relation between smooth transfer of momentum and the foot being flat. The foot flexes from not-flat to flat to non-flat as the impact is initiated, then as forces is maximized, mainly from the hip and mainly free of vibration thanks to the foot, and then in the exit procedure. The tricky part of the Parkour roll is how it deals with the priority of not crushing your spine. I think ideally, one leg should be pushing through the exit of the roll and the foot flat/flexing while the other is in the swing state, but some people come up with the other foot still pushing, which is interesting, too.
