Question Testudo fading shield

Whenever I enter combat I gain a 1,103 fading shield on my level 63.

I had 1.8k hp (down to 1.1k hp now, but the fading shield is the same amount).
Shield level is 23
Testudo is level 23.

Shouldn't I be getting ~2.2k fading shield with 1.1k hp, or the full 2.3k when I was at 1.8k hp?

I thought the testudo formula was the minimum of:
-HP x 2
-Shield Level *100
-Testudo Level * 100

Is combat starting 5 seconds after entering and therefore I'm only receiving half? in that case I would have assumed 1150 while I was at 1.8k hp.

Is this bugged?

It isn't. The skill doesn't scale linearly and according to the skill description, you would still need 100 in Testudo to ever get Shield Level *100 of shielding.
Computing the probability that at least one of the following events will occur:
P(a or b ... or z) = 1 - P(!a and !b ... and !z)
