Will creating a baseline report duplicate resource allocation?

Hello, in Smartsheet's "Project Management Fundamentals" course, specifically in the section on Reporting, there's a great example on how you can compare the original plan (baseline) to actual project dates. The solution illustrated here is to Save As New the original plan (BEFORE you modify any dates), and save it outside of the Workspace. Then run a report calling data from both "baseline" sheet and current project sheet. This could be a very handy tool for us, but I am wondering what happens to the "allocated to" resource on the sheets? Will my resource management and resource view be able to filter out the resource allocation on the baseline sheet? If not, the resource will be "double allocated", and the resource view will be unrealistic. Is there any way to avoid this?

Thanks!
