Why moon+ reader makes a copy of a book?

Hi! I'm using Oreo 8.1.0 on my oneplus 5t phone. I'm new to moon+ reader. Recently, I noticed that it creates a separate file for every epub I open. I came to know about this when I opened a 191 mb epub on it and it created a copy of it.

I was actually searching for large files and folders in my phone and this popped up.

Is there a way so that moon+ reader uses the source file from my ebooks folder without creating a copy of it?

It does not., Unless you have configured it strangely.
It makes a small database entry of the books metadata is all
that database is stored separately from the books but it only contains metadata and a cover thumbnail
Evidence:
. If i search my entire tablet for..epub, each book exists in one place only
. If I choose a book currently being read in moon, and go delete it from the original download folder where I put it, then next time I open moon it will say the book is now missing..

Maybe there is an option within its hundreds of options to have it make complete copies, but that is not the default behaviour

I also have android 8 on this device.
