Big file size reduction when model is detached

We have a revit model in BIM 360 that's 950MB. It contains one revit link. I have just spent all day going through the process outlined here ('how to keep the file size manageable'):

As you can see from the attached chart, I got a 200MB reduction from simply detaching the model from central (with worksets retained). Just wondering if anyone out there has a notion as to why detaching would make such a huge saving. Seems wrong to me. What is getting deleted when I detach?

 

Thanks
