A1 focus limiter on or not on Tele-lens?

Based on my empirical data , it seems like I get a lot more keepers (in focus) when my lens (200-600) is set to Full instead of partial limit

I shoot mainly BIF and noticed I missed a lot when the focus limiter is set to 10m on (usually the first dozen frames at the start)

Of course the bird is beyond the 10m range

This seems to defy logic but my results prove otherwise

Can anyone concur or disprove this theory?

For now I just leave the lens to Full range (still missing but less than with the limiter on)
