Yeah, I've seen that as well. It seems the shield regen is divided among the 4 shields equally. However, if 3 shields are full, and one is weaker, then it only gets 1/4 of the regen. So balancing all shields seems to inject more shield energy into all shields which is better over all.
If that is the case, it should be changed. Full energy should be injected into the weaker shield always, so if 1 shield is down, it gets 100% of the shield regen. Clicking on one shield facing should transfer energy from the other shields, and also get the 100% shield regen on it (even if it is not the weakest shield).
This is all from what I have seen, I have no proof but it does seem to be something like this. This is just a big guess
