Why should it make any difference? They are parametric items and AE doesn't really care. The real point really is just visual distinction with different parameters and sizes when you need to do so, but otherwise all AE does is create a blank buffer that acts as the canvas for effects (solids) or an empty, non-rendering buffer (Nulls). Even if you always use the same source items the inernal logic is not different. A "Solid 1" used 50 times in a comp incurs the same processing like using solids 1

Even if you always use the same source items the inernal logic is not different. A "Solid 1" used 50 times in a comp incurs the same processing like using solids 1 through 50. It's under the hood stuff you should not concern yourself with too much.

Are you asking about reducing the number of files in the Project Panel?   If so, File > Dependencies > Consolidate Footage will trim down all the identical solids and nulls.  I don't know if it makes any difference to file size or loading time, but it does give you a neater project bin.
