Is "cut and paste an attached image to another page" supposed to create new attachment or not?

According to the 'Displaying an image attached to a different page' on the help link below,

Expected results:

It says that the pasted image will refer to its original source.

Actual results:

But, what happened in my Confluence 5.9.1, it does not refer to its original attachment, instead it created new attachment to the page i pasted it in.


Can anyone help me on this one?

It's just that the documentation has not yet been updated to reflect this (it says that it is version 5.6 after all).
