[PD] counter question

If I use a simple counter structure that continues to generate a number
from [f] & [+1] at every bang, and use [mod] to keep that number within
certain bounds, then eventually it will require more and more memory to
hold the number coming from [f], right? Is this a potential memory leak,
or is there a cap to how much memory it will hold?
Likewise, is there a max limit to the number that can be stored in [f]?
I've seen that [f] resets itself somewhere around 8.394e+06. Does that
mean that [f] resets itself and clears the memory?
Or in less-theoretical and more practical terms, would it make sense to
reset [f] to 0 every so often, or let it run forever towards infinity?
