RX10 Optical Zoom Limit - Question

Original RX10 with max optical zoom 200mm.  When I set camera to 'optical zoom only' (thus disabling clear image zoom) my understanding is that the zoom would automatically stop at 200 mm.

However, I've noticed that the zoom bar actually extends past 200mm mark and a little popup icon shows something like 1.3x.

Since the clear image is disabled, why does camera allow zoom past 200mm?

Thanks for any insight.
