Mostly because it knows what the LSN is and that it has already restored it.  That is part of the black box of sqllogship.exe.  If there are multiple files in the directory where the copy lands, then it will need to try those out.  There is no context that I know of during the restore process of the job.

There is a table in msdb database that stores last restored file and last copied file. So, SQL Server job knows to skip the files already copied and restored. The table name should start with log_ship

the monitor server was not in the same box and it was in a different domain. So it did not record the last restored or last backed up file. So it started copying every file and skipping the ones those were not restored.
