Default Freezing applications

When you freeze a system application (ex. some sort of bloatware like Chat On from Samsung) with an app like Titanium Backup, does that actually free up that memory that it was using? Or does it just stop it from updating, notifying, annoying you?

It will stop it running all together, as if it was uninstalled. It will still take up storage space

So the only way to free up the space is to completely uninstall the app?

Is it safe to uninstall KNOX? Or is it better to just freeze the KNOX files?
