You do if you have checked "Copy files to iTYunes Media dfolder when addingb to library" in iTunes > Preferences > Advanced.
To see which file iTuines is using, select a song and type Command+Shift+R to reveal the file in the Finder.

So in order to not duplicate files (and save space) do you recommend saving the file in whatever directory one chooses by dragging the file into iTunes so it knows where it is -- with the assumption that you won't move the file again and break the link with iTunes?

You should make all you moves from within the iTunes interface. Never in the Finder. iTunes could lose the link. iTunes is a data base manager. If moves are made outside of the iTunes interface then the move might not have been recognized.
I have always use the iTunes prefs>Advanced>copy and keep options since these became available and have rarely 'lost' an association.
If I have files on the Desktop, I use iTunes to copy them into iTunes and then delete the Desktop copy so I don't have dups. You can drag into iTunes or use File>Add to Library option to get files into iTunes.
