That one probably provides the cap, like that you can't go below 25 % hit chance. (if you check the excel sheet attached to the podcast BigRedJedi refers to, you should see that there isn't a hit chance below 25 %.)
Just noticed this... The formula that determines the final Accuracy/Defense To-Hit Value is actually seen on the spreadsheet, next to the boxes where "If Diff Positive" and "If Diff Negative" are found.
