Incorrect status miles for FTL & SEN in Miles&More app?

I've been looking at some flights in the measly T class which should on an European cross-border flight give a fixed 125 status miles for regular M&M members, or +25% = 157 status miles for Frequent Travelers or Senators.

However, the mileage calculator in the M&M mobile app displays 319 status miles for FTL&SEN. It's showing similarly inflated status miles numbers for other booking classes as well (e.g. for S it should be 500+25% = 625 but it shows 694; for H it should be 750+25% = 938 but it shows 944; etc.) - but only on the fixed mileage European flights - for intercontinental flights where the status miles are calculated as a percentage, the +25% shows up as expected.

So the question is whether it's a bug in the app, or the FTL / Senator bonus is not +25% but calculated differently on fixed mileage European flights.

Isn't it 25% of the "100% value" as opposed to 25% of the earning?

No, for the intra-EU fixed mileage values, it is 25% of this value, i.e.:
125+32
500+125
750+188
2000+500
etc.

Therefore, this must be (another) bug of the mileage calculator.
