No matter how much insulation is wrapped around a pipe, if the water sits long
enough it will acquire the same temperature as the attic air around it.

The purpose of the insulation was not to keep the water cold so that it would be
cold when you use it.   It was, as you said, to protect against condensation
dripping from the pipes and ruining your ceiling.
