I don't think there is much info about that, it's been mentioned
on this list a couple of times though, see e.g.

Well, you were measuring it wrong and the comparison doesn't make
much sense to me either since you're basically comparing apples
and oranges. The memory consumption of mtpaint also heavily
depends on the uncompressed size of the image you're editing. In
any case, this is offtopic here.
