The "100%" charge setting has never allowed use of the full battery capacity for any LEAF.
Available battery capacity has always been limited by the LBC.
There is quite a bit of evidence, IMO, that the "100%" SOC available has never been a constant percentage of the full battery capacity either.

BTW TickTock, why no updates of "100%", "from the wall" since last October?
So, IMO, it is entirely possible that when charging to "100%", the 2014 LBC may limit the available battery capacity differently than it has in previous years.
It could be that since Nissan decided to add an additional warrantee of capacity, it also found it prudent to further idiot-proof SOC management.
As to the "80%" SOC, and other SOC options below "100%", won't this be fairly easy for the after-market to address?
If I recall correctly, Ingineer (Phil) stated he could add variable SOC settings years ago.
