Boot image size varies?

Can anyone explain me why the bridge/gateway/restore/router images have different file sizes?

When i wipe my shield, i copy the restore image (1.51SP1) over the bridge/router/gateway.
Without (!) using the router/gateway images, I see the following sizes later on:

drwxr-xr-x    5 root     root         12288 Dec 31  1969 . 
drwxrwxrwt   16 root     root           460 Apr 16 11:54 .. 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      35862152 Nov 26 02:03 ItusbridgeImage 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      58078856 Nov 26 02:02 ItusgatewayImage 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      40859016 Mar 30 14:29 ItusrestoreImage 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      58144392 Nov 26 02:01 ItusrouterImage 
drwxr-xr-x    4 root     root          4096 Feb 18 23:26 backup 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        470976 Mar 27  2015 octboot2.bak 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        470976 Mar 27  2015 octboot2.bin 
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root          4096 Dec  1 10:46 restore 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       1138416 May 27  2015 u-boot-octeon_rhino_itus7x.bin 
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root          4096 Mar 30 14:29 updates 

BTW, this is a size table from Breda - exactly matching mine.
