When a component is placed into the model, a representation of it is inserted at the point you click. Multiple insertions (or copies) of the same component need only one insertion point per copy. While any of these insertions can have a different location, rotation, or scale, the underlying geometry is safely stored in that hidden location in the file. As a result, the file space required for a component is simply a single copy of the geometry plus a single insertion point for each copy. This makes components very efficient in terms of storage.
