In game design, a free entity/effect/function/whatever is one that does not have any impact on run-time performance at all.

This is only the case when an operation would be carried out anyway; where rather than adding data, your actions replace that which already exists. The best examples of this in Source are static, un-named lights and 2D skyboxes.
