As you know it's possible to store uploaded files on disc rather than the database. The only issue is that each uploaded file is stored in a separate folder on disc.

Doesn't this behavior get my site into trouble while the site receives more files to upload monthly?

Not really. File ids that share the same first 3 digits are stored in the same directory. That helps reduce the amount of files per directory. The more files you have the more chance you'll have that 2 or more files fit in the same directory.
 
Here is the function responsible of performing the file distribution so: https://github.com/q2a/question2answer/blob/master/qa-include/app/blobs.php#L40

Definitely not. This works this way in order not to get your site into trouble when files get uploaded
