The one (and only) query gets repeated for each row in your import file.
I've only ever tried a single query during an import, but it would be an interesting experiment to try > 1.
Basically the fields in the import file are "mapped" into the locations identified by question marks and I'm guessing the whole query is submitted for processing.
I believe SQLA uses prepared statements. This essentially means that the Teradata recognises a query that takes some number of values. These values are to be supplied separately and at a later time. Then SQLA reads your import files and supplies those values 1 row at a time. In this model, the query is only sent to TD once, parsing etc only occurs once and data values simply "flow into the system".
