Default 3rd Party Dependencies - folder in branch question

on p 222 - 1st para suggests that an issue with this approach is the increased use of storage since "each product family set of branches contained in version control has a copy of dependencies."

But I thought that branches contained only 'pointers' to the files, p 190: "when you perform the branch, it doesn't actually create new copies .. it just creates a record pointing to them."

Please clarify if possible ASAP we are planning our tfs structure and space usage is a big concern (and we have quite a few 3rd party assemblies).

thx, riix
