It's usually recommended to use 1 1/4 glass of DME to prime 5 gallons batch to put it in bottles. Does it mean keg carbonation requires less priming material? Significantly less. Is it right? I've been waiting for my first pig to arrive, good you've started this discussion.

Yes. If you are bottling in Pigs or kegs you DO NOT prime with the same amount of sugar as if you were bottling.
