Yes, that's what makes them congruent!

Two geometric shapes are similar if they have same size,shape, side lengths,and angles.

Thinking about the two dimensional equivalent, sharp corners basically waste perimeter while encompassing little additional area. As you increase the number of corners in a shape, you end up carving out more area for the same input of perimeter. As a shape's number of sides approaches larger and larger numbers, it rounds out to the point where you can think of a circle as a shape with infinite number of sides and corners. The same goes for three dimensional figures, substituting volume for area. Essentially, sharp corners are wasteful, the more corners you have the less wasteful they are, so if you have an infinite number of corners, you'll be enclosing the most volume/area with minimum surface area/perimeter.

Two shapes that are the same size and same shape are said to be congruent. They can still vary in mass.
