Yes. Even so, that large chunk containing a LOADed section would be read *whether or not the other parts of it happen to be LOADed or not*, so, again, the worst that .comment does is to reduce packing efficiency of LOADed sections. This is hardly a killer --- given that we have no effective tools to improve locality of reference in shared libraries anyway, we're wasting far more disk accesses on unnecessary paging due to poor packing of accessed functions.
