I’m trying to use TCP protocol for better performance for NFS mounts but currently
/proc/mounts says its using TCP protocol? does that mean NFS is already using TCP by default?

Red Hat Enterprise Linux defaults to using TCP to transport NFS.
TCP is the default transport protocol for NFS version 2 and 3 under Red Hat Enterprise Linux. UDP can be used for compatibility purposes as needed, but is not recommended for wide usage. NFSv4 requires TCP.
