About precomputing hash values

I'm a bit surprised that precomputing hash values is a gain: after all these precomputed value increase (a little) the size of the object files, so the gain of the lookup must be balanced against the increased time loading for the disk the object files.
Do the time measurements take into account the 'loading from the disk' part? Or are the object files already in memory?
