I should amend that: depending on what packages are loaded when the
file is first time visited, you may need to do this visit-then-kill
routine a couple of times, before you see the result I'd expect: that
the footprint goes up by about the size of the file, then goes back
down to what it was before.

The first time you visit the file, you may see memory increase due to
loading packages such as the major and minor modes used by the file.
