part assigned sequence behavior puzzling

I am puzzled by the following behavior:

tmp = Range[15]
tmp[[7]] = Sequence @@ Range[2];
tmp[[7]] = Sequence @@ Range[2];
tmp[[7]] = Sequence @@ Range[2];
tmp

yields

{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15}
{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15}

I would have expected the repeated assignment to have a repeated
effect, thus obtaining

{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15}
{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 2, 2, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15}

Where/why am I wrong?
