Figma increases filesize of pictures? WTF

Hello together,

today I encountered a very interesting phenomenon. I hope someone here can explain it to me. When I am importing an image with 936 KB of file size and then immediately export that same image (without editing anything) then the image suddenly has 2.5 MB. Can someone explain this behavior to me? Is this a bug? What is happening here?
