Going by the assumption that IBM is right, let's see how this might work.
Let's say the object in question (just for an example) is QCMDEXC.
You run this command: DSPOBJD OBJ(QSYS/QCMDEXC) OBJTYPE(*PGM) DETAIL(*SERVICE)
and you see that the current PTF is SI70520.
Now you put on PTF SI71481. You run the DSPOBJD command again and you see SI71481.
In the process of putting on SI71481 it created a save of QCMDEXC into a save file then restored it with the new one. When you do a RMVPTF it will restore the one saved. Now, keep in mind that the one save had SI70520 in it's DSPOBJD so therefore a RMVPTF of SI71481 would also remove SI70970.
Make sense?
If, instead of RMVPTF of si71481, you applied it permanently, it would get rid of the save file containing the SI70520 version of QCMDEXC. Thus freeing up that space.
