Why is my start date earlier than it should be when I am using Retained Logic vs. Progress override?

One activity has many successors with SS relationships. For example in the attached document - using Retained logic - Activity CO.IN.1125 - Finish Drywall Lids has a start date of 1/17/18. If I change that to Progress Override - the start dates becomes 1/30/18, which appears to be the correct date. I put this project plan into Primavera and when I use either Progress Override or Retained Logic - I still get the 1/30/18 date. Please explain the reason Retained Logic using SS appears to pull dates forward?

    I don’t feel comfortable sharing the SP file with you, as it is for a private group.

    I will try to scrub it in the next week or so – and if I’m able to get it pretty clean – then I’ll send it to you.
