Did they change the way that pity rate increases?

I always thought that the rate resets after you finish a session, no matter when you pulled a 5*. So if you pulled in order 5*, 4*, 3*, 4*, 3*, your rate is reset to base. After 5 non-5* it goes up to base+0.25. If you had a high pity and pulled a 5*, it made sense to finish the circle since you'd still have that rate.

But on this mythic banner I pulled a 5* in my first full circle, so that should reset to 8%. I then pulled 5, 5, and 3, and my focus rate went up to 9.5%, not 9%. Did it start counting again after I pulled a 5* (within the session), thus resetting the rate?

Edit: seems like this always existed: https://www.reddit.com/r/FireEmblemHeroes/comments/a0ozy6/til_that_pity_rates_start_off_in_the_middle_of_a/
