One or two flats (1/6-1/3) of a turn can make a big difference at the snug end of things.
The sprockets never wear 'perfectly even' all the way around.
A drive chain could have 'slightly' different metal alloy in a section.
Combine the 2 differences in the same exact spot and we can get "slightly too tight or slightly too loose".
You did the best that you were taught, and you passed your Best info along. Rest easy.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
