Yes - thats exactly what happens.
When you delete or edit a body, it causes the program to mark the original
record in the sector file as 'deleted' (creating a new one for the body at
the end of the file if you are editing). When you save-as, the program
only copies over the active records in the file, skipping the deleted
ones. Its similar in a lot of ways to the way many databases structure
