AFAIK it works as intended and they use the same formulae as CO:

In CO the formula is:
'percentage shown'/100 + 1 = divisor.
1 - 1/divisor = 'true' resistance (multiply by 100 to get a percentage)

At 7.5%:
7.5/100 +1 = 1.075
1 - (1/1.075) = 6.97%

At 20%:
20/100 + 1 = 1.20
1- (1/1.20) = 16.666%

At 22%:
22/100 + 1 = 1.22
1-(1/1.22) = 18%

[for reference]
50%:
50/100 +1 = 1.5
1-(1/1.5) = 33%

100%:
100/100 + 1 = 2
1-(1/2) = 50%

200%:
200/100 + 1 = 3
1-(1/3) = 66%
