I wouldn't say that programmers just copy-paste. But a lot of them seem to compile code libraries that they can use on different projects. If this is a genuine question, maybe some programmer can answer in more detail.

Well it depends on the nature of the application. If we're talking about cut-n-paste being the same as code reuse, then of course there is going to be overlap. In the world of computer programming there is a notion called "Patterns" these are time tested ideas and methodologies that can be reused so as not to reinvent the wheel.
