Yes, I understand this. But, they are two separate partitions. The S7 does not dynamically resize partitions. /system and /data are completely self-contained, and the size of either does not effect the other.
Space on /system, does not effect space on /data. I don't know how much plainer I can say this. All you're doing is freeing space on /system, but nothing goes there except pre-installed *system* files!
The bolded, underlined, italicized is the part that doesn't make any sense. It's taking up space in /system, which has no bearing on space in /data. Period, end of sentence, full stop. I'm not saying anything more on this matter, because I don't think you're going to get it.
