You didn't answer my question.  I didn't ask how many days you packed to.
I asked if you set pack-keep-old. I'm guessing from your response that you

If you don't set pack-keep-old to false, then old blobs are kept around, just
like the file-storage file, except that, rather than making copies, hard links
are created.

The second time you packed, the old links would be removed, freeing up
the space taken by the old blobs.
