To get rollover for the second year, we take the 100 actual nights earned that year, subtract the 75 that were "used" to get MR Plat for the following year, and get 100 - 75 = 25 nights for rollover. IIRC in some earlier years, people who were given PP had 100 rather than 75 nights subtracted for their earned status before there could be any rollover.

EDIT: Mea culpa:

I'm not sure if there were any bugs in rollover, as I'm not quite sure how I had any nights rolled over from 2016 to 2017 in that case (I definitely did have nights roll over, about 30)... Marriott does not expose prior year totals by night type.
