THe vibrating mass is certainly the whole of the top, and may (maybe) include the headstock although to a much lesser degree. I would be pretty surprised if the change in mass of a little saddle strip would make much difference. And and increase in mass would reduce the resonant frequency (obviously) so rendering the tone less bright, not more so.
