Help me understand the X100F optical viewfinder

Can anyone help me understand the rangefinder on the X100F? I've been trying it out, and the framing in the OVF doesn't match what comes out on photos. And It's not just the parallax, it's the width of the frame.

Attached is a photo I shot where I framed the sides of the bush exactly inside the white lines in the OVF's frame. Yet there's a lot of space around the bush. It's as if the frame things I'm a lot further away than I am. Any explanation for this?
