I'm speculating here, but if the system does not receive velocity data directly, but rather computes it from positional data, and given that the faster something moves, the harder it is to determine accurate position, it would make sense that slower moving objects would result in being able to obtain more accurate data.
I have no explanation for the difference in the jets though.
