It doesn't.  You may be watching the kernel doing memory management any way it
feels like... but unless you see the resource usage of the cdparanoia process
growing, you're not watching real memory usage of the process, you;re just
watching the kernel move caches around.

Look at SIZE and RSS of cdparanoia in ps and top.  That will tell you page
usage of the process.
