I'm not an expert on Emacs internals, but I think that depends on
whether they are memory leaks or "memory leaks," the latter being when
references are held longer than necessary.  Also, presumably, until
something forces a garbage collection, even unreferenced memory may
appear to be "in use."

Please do correct me if I'm mistaken.
