Crazy high buffer memory usage??

So I recently noticed that Plex uses all the buffer memory it possibly can.
Any reason why? Does this affect the general performance on my NAS?
In this graph you can see memory usage with all services of, and then I start only the Plex service.
Is this normal? I mean it shouldn't be doing anything, no one is watching anything or adding new media?
Also if I then turn off the Plex service, the buffer memory don't go down to normal usage..
I've read that usually buffer memory should be lower than cached, but that's not what happends here.

I'm running a QNAP TS-469 Pro with 3 Gb memory, QTS
