Global Calculation Fields and Relationships

I am trying to eliminate any unnecessary recalculations of relationships in my solution.   I'm pretty sure that if I setup a relationship between a global field and table field that it must be recalculated on the users computer each time the user enters a layout or changes the global field.   Does this act the same way with Global Calculation fields?

 

For instance if I have a global cacluation field that simply calculates text ie. "Bob Jones" and I then relate that to the sales associate name in my table will that relationship be arranged on filemaker server or the user machines when they after it's opened?
