Apparently you think that the constantly increasing amount of "Used" memory in my case falls in the case described as:
Memory that is: used, but can be made available
You’d call it: Free (or Available)
Linux calls it: Used (and Available)
Let's see what happens if I run 20 processes for few days...

At least both your „free“ and „valgrind“ output indicate the opposite (as does the word „saturate“ above).
Please read up about the columns „free“, „used“ and „available“ of free console output.
