Why are Flatpak packages so much bigger than RPMs?

Hello everyone. I’m new Linux user. I just have a question , Why RPM fusion packages is like 10% size of FLATPAK packages ?

flatpaks are containerized. The contain not only the package itself but other dependencies needed to run the package. The only thing a flatpak can depend on is other flatpak runtimes.

An rpmfusion package is only the package itself. It gets it’s dependencies from the system or other packages.
