[Oberon] PO2013 - ORL Linker Static Buffer

I use rather earlier version of the above. Looking at buffer
allocation code part.

 binStart := Modules.AllocPtr; binMTOrg := binStart + 32; binroot :=
NIL; res := 0; limit := Kernel.heapOrg; DEC(limit, 8000H);
    binAllocPtr :=  binStart+ 256; i:= 0;
    WHILE i < 256+DescSize DO SYSTEM.PUT(binStart + i, 0); INC(i, 4)

This sets aside a static block from the heap, if I got the idea right.

[a] I do not see later in the code, the block is released?
[b] These are mine limits, do I need to adjust anything in ORL?

ORTool 18.2.2013

Many thanks
