/usr/bin/X11/X11/....... 10 X11 subsets & counting

While searching for my files in my blocked RaspberryPi (Link - I found a forever repeating set of X11 sub-folders in /usr/bin: eg /usr/bin/X11, /usr/bin/X11/X11, etc - Gave up looking after 10 sets & each one contains the same set of 'shared library' files ranging from a few octets to 180 koctets.
Does anyone know why? It seems an enormous waste of memory.
All the best, Walter
