Question about MF Diminishing Returns Formulae rounding

Perhaps some of you clever people here can answer a simple question.

I have looked at the MF Diminishing Returns Formulae for uniques and set items:

Uniques: Final MF = (MF*250)/(MF+250)
Set Items: Final MF = (MF*500)/(MF+500)

Currently I have 703 MF, and if I understand this correctly, it does not matter if a have 702 MF or 707 MF, when only looking at uniques and set items.

In the MF formula I assume that 'Final MF' is rounded down so
702 MF => Unique-MF=(702*250)/(702+250)=184.349 rounded 184
707 MF => Unique-MF=(707*250)/(707+250)=184.692 rounded 184

702 MF => Set-MF=(702*500)/(702+500)=292.013 rounded 292
707 MF => Set-MF=(707*500)/(707+500)=292.875 rounded 292

So no differens between 702 and 707 MF, when only looking on unique and sets. I know there is a difference when looking at rare and magic items.

I have read most of the MF guide by Hrus in the stickies and some other stuff, but have not found a clear answer.

Hope someone can help.

This is the closest quote from the MF guide to your thought. Reading this again, I made a note for making next version - to rewrite this part slightly better...
