Are Droplets Created with Snapshots Connected?

I created a single droplet and configured it to run my application. I then took a snapshot of that droplet and created two more droplets from that snapshot. When I deployed app changes to the original droplet, the two new droplets also received the same code. I only scp’d to the original droplet. Is this supposed to happen?

Each created droplet has its own storage. Presumably you pushed your modifications to both droplets or your droplets pull their information from the same source.
