Makes about as much sense as assuming you beat them on turn 15 or wherever the cutoff point for no bonus is. Really, this is irrelevant, as long as the relevant weight did not change.
In fact, it now works like before they added the turn bonus, where the points displayed were the maximum amount you could get. The turn bonus changed that, and they’ve now brought it in line with how it was before.
I’m trying really hard to find any situation where this would affect gameplay at all - of course, if you can beat a team in a lot fewer turns, it might make sense to take that one instead of the one awarding more points where you might need a lot of turns. But that was the case before the change to display max points was made.
@GR.Scopely, the display after the battle does not align with the max score though, as shown in one of the previous threads - the point summary shows more points are awarded than the rewards part. This can’t result from one of the two being max score possible, because both are the scores for the current battle. Could you inquire about this? (And, while you’re at it, about the Last words/Gear map issue?)
