For a Soongian android, the difference between assembled and disassembled approximates the difference between standing and seated for a human. Except that a human might find it uncomfortable or even dangerous to remain seated for years at an end, while an android would be only minimally inconvenienced.
Except that a human sitting down can -choose- to stand up. A disassembled android has had that choice taken away, provided they're not being reassembled and asked their opinion at regular intervals.
