Silent Shutter speed for no banding

I was testing my Z6 with Silent Electronic Shutter at night, and did some tests to find out if banding can be avoided at some shutter speeds. The power at my place is at 50 Hz, so I set my shutter speed at 1/50s, and I did not see any banding. I repeated the tests at different shutter speeds and following are my observations:

At shutter speeds equal to or less than 1/100s, like 1/80, 1/60, 1/50, 1/40, 1/30, 1/25... I didn't see any banding.

At 1/125s, I could see minor banding. Above that speed, I could see severe banding.

So I assume that in US, with 60Hz power lines, we should not see banding from 1/120s and down. Do you have similar observation?
