No, it does not affect size approximation.
The difference comes from the order in which expressions are examined. The file name is part of the identifiers which are used as key for an hashtable. While inlining, some quotas are consumed while traversing the expression. It seems that in your case, there is a threshold for a specific function that change a lot of things.
