It's different if you do it before, at, slightly after or several second after first drop, and in manual machine, it's not easy to do it same way every time

It's just one variable out of many ...
Jon Gagné had a similar observation on his article about puck prep & resistance.

Adding a pause after preinfusion can let the puck saturate more fully, affecting resistance/flow during extraction.
