Subjectcompiling with -g changes symbol addresses

Sorry if this is NOT related to kernel per se. but...

Compiling a kernel module with and without "-g" gcc flag,
(rest of the compiler flags remaining exactly the same/usual)
changes the offsets/addresses of some (not all) symbols
[saw using nm(1)].

Is this normal? I thought "-g" just adds debug info into the object
file. and it should not change the offsets/addresses that
symbols get assigned during compilation.

btw I am using gcc 2.96 (from RH).
