Difference in Play Path

Difference in Play Path

Is anyone else seeing a difference in their toolpaths between running play path inside of the sequence and by Right clicking on the sequence in the feature tree? I initially had an issue with a face milling sequence but I just came across the same issue with a Volume Rough sequence. I see this in both M080 and M100.

Here is the toolpath from inside of the sequence. Both Volumes plunge from .100" above the volume by using "Clear_Dist"

Here is the same exact toolpath when RMB > Play Path. The lower volume rapids into the part.

For the time being I increased my "Clear_Dist" to .375" to make the bottom on plunge as needed and the top one just plunges from farther away from the part.

Anyone else seeing anything like this???
