iMac Photos - Importing copy items to the Photos Library

I ve been an Aperture user for about 7 years. Now I am trying to use Photos and just getting started. I have not touched my Aperture photos and only working with new photos not yet imported anywhere. Here is my question: I have the box unchecked that says Importing: Copy items to the Photos library. However after importing into photos the photos do show up in the photos library file. If I open the library file up I can see the files there. I also do not see them anywhere else in the Pictures directory. I am confused to what this selection is suppose to do or not do. If its not suppose to copy them to the Photos library where is it suppose to copy them? It gave me no choice on import?

What am I missing?

thanks
