Are attached files still downloaded when they are no longer referenced from a page?

Are attached files still downloaded when a user browses to a page if those files are no longer accessed by links from the page  I am trying to decide whether I need to delete these old attachments to avoid unnecessary downloads to the a user's system.

Yes, the users will be able to access attachments by clicking on the attachment icon even though they don't have a link on the page.

Thanks.  I understand that the attachments can be accessed from the icon.  But are they pre-downloaded when the page is loaded or are they only downloaded when the attachment is explicitly accessed.
