[Cake] Latency target curiosity

As some of you are aware, I’ve been working on ’near live’ graphing of Cake’s stats under Openwrt, basically taking the output of ’tc -s -j qdisc foo’ and putting in relevant graphs.
A curiosity has arisen: I use diffserv4 mode on a 20Mbit egress link. Bulk tin has ‘capacity’ threshold of 1.2Mbit and because it’s a slow ’tin', the default target & interval values get overridden to 14.6ms and 109.6ms respectively. The 3 other tins are 5ms & 100ms defaults.
I have a backup job that bulk uploads 5 simultaneous flows to Onedrive. The sparse_delay, average_delay & peak_delay figures settle on 32, 38 & 43 ms respectively with around 9 drops per second on that tin.
I’m curious as to why the reported delays are over double the target latency?
