Your own link disagreed with you.

whether it be from the human eye or a 90mm Super-angulon or a
300 f/2.8 zuiko or a 4.7mm compact lens.

Maybe its me but i can see the same DoF in all of the pictures you
have shown. Maybe we are getting differnt ideas of DoF.

Even the exact equations disagree with you, as well as the online calculators that use them. You argued that the equations tell you the answers. Now you disagree with them?

I can see the same amount of IN FOCUS carpeting. I see the same
extinction points both in the foreground and background.

I quote myself:

"Images usually help, but not always. I've actually had people tell me the DOF in each of these images is exactly the same. I'm serious. I look at them and I just shake my head!"

Here, I'll label a different set for you.
