It's all a bit more complex, but if you combine a shadowy (not necessarily stupidly dark) scene with contrast that the lens needs to hunt back and forth at any setting then high refresh-rate will make the lens hunt faster. Like I wrote, it's all more complex than what we tackle here. In another thread where we discussed these things I posted an example video.

This was done quick and dirty, but should give you an idea. No idea which discussion thread we talked more in detail about these things.
