Default [Q] Question about sdcard space and folders

Hi,
I have a question about my phone's storage.

My phone is N7100, mega-wiped by zoot's script, but after it said job is completed(total process is 1~2 sec), the screen froze, then I reboot, stuck at Galaxy Note II page so I think the mega wipe worked. Boot into download, flash N7100 Odin STOCK leaked 4.3 version (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2466405) by Odin3 v1.85

Everything looks OK but when I got into setting and check storage, the system memory took up 5.54gb. I feel that this is too much comparing to my previous experience. And when I connect my phone to computer through USB, it shows my phone has 9.91gb free out of 10.4gb, which means the 5.54gb is the system partition.
Is this normal?
And I use ES file to look into the folder system. I found
1. /sdcard is a short cut.
2. under /storage folder, there are 7 folders (emulated, extsdcard, sdcard0(short cut), UsbDriveA to F)
3. under /storage/emulated folder, there are 2 folders, 0 and legacy which both contain exactly same contents as my /sdcard folder

Firstly, are these things normal?
If not, what could be the problem? My doubt is that this has something to do with the mod swapping extsdcard and internal sd card, I might choose the option to do this when I was installing Phoenix ROM V16. I didn't remove this mod according to original thread because there is no file supposed to be deleted.... If this is the problem? Even megawipe cannot wipe this? or my mega wipe did not work well at first place (frozen screen after wiping and wiping process is so short, 1~2 sec.)? If this is the problem, how can I get rid of this and have my internal space really clean like just got out of factory?

Thanks for any imputs!!

You can use folder mount to map folders on extsd to intsd i.e. to be used for big obb files of games or gps maps etc.
