Adding same file to different notes duplicates the file in media?

Does adding the same file to two (or more) different notes makes that many copies in the medial folder?

It won’t duplicate the file; You can check that by looking through the collection.media folder.
If a file has the same name as an existing file but has actually different content, Anki adds the file while changing its name to make it unique.
