Apologies maybe my description wasn't clear.
The lever is a defined setting, however it can have more than one setting. So if you move between setting 2 and 3 for example on the lever (which may adjust a number of variables in relation to braking or chassis balance) the rotary adjustment will let you dial in as an example 2.5 or any other fractional percentage between 2 and 3.
As the lever will typically have a predetermined number of gates of movements set at evenly spaced percentages and as such it allows only "course" adjustments (as an example 5 stages accounting for 20% per gate of total adjustment or 2 gates. Pick any variable) while the rotary adjustment in theory can have an infinite number of adjustment stages throughout its 360 degree rotation or more depending on adjustment ratio.
It is even possible to have differing rotary ratio's where requested/required that necessitates a lesser or greater number of turns to achieve any given percentage of adjustment to increase or decrease adjustment sensitivity. Some drivers may like greater control, other may feel simple course adjustments are all that's required.
Series other than F1 (which I have been party too) used similar setups, so I am simply surmising that this is what "might" be happening here. I don't know definitively if this is the case.
