No % meter on an EV or gas cars is completely linear. It's the nature of the beast. it's never a perfect curve. You should see engine tables in an emissions car. They need to correct the cells to optimize them to the true values to get the lowest possible emissions. So they have data scatter down all the rows.
On an EV, it is normally calculated based on battery voltage and temperature. Your battery holds more power when it's warm than cold.
Think about it:
EV range on a dry very cold day is bad. Some is tire flex, a tiny bit is air density, but the biggest part is battery capacity.
JLR says the battery actually holds 84.7 kWh, but that number would be a warm battery, from 100% down to -2% (JLR docs say the scan tool reads 2% when the dash reads 0%).
