Do you mean size overhead or performance overhead?
The m4v container has no size overhead and I suspect
the performance overhead is (very, very slightly)
bigger with rawvideo (it has more special-cases).

The container called "rawvideo" is for rawvideo (yuv,
rgb), raw codecs have specific containers.
