DFM, stands for delphi form. Every form in Delphi has a corresponding DFM file which stores design-time properties.
Some people may store images directory in DFM files, and Delphi will load the images when the form is created. I don't recommend it, as it bloats your EXE and slows the creation time of forms, but for small images it is ok.

The temporary stream is needed when images are loaded from DFM files, when the stream is not at the beginning. When reading files, the stream is at the beginning so the temporary stream is not needed. The same process is not needed in GetImageCount, because GetImageCount is not called when loading forms.

Best regards,
