Swings on Bar count not on Levels

I just loaded the mkSupDemZones indicator and see something unexpected.

To show the problem I used a Range 1 tick chart.
It would seem that swing indicators should show swings on PRICE levels not BAR counts.
Most of the ones I've have checked all do the same thing as this one so it is not unique to mkSupDemZones.

I have the indicator set to show swing spans of 8.
I would think the swing would not be made until 8 ticks of price change AND a new high or low is detected.

However, most of the swing indicators show a swing when more than 8 bars are detected and a new high or low.
This seems like a bug? Or is it just not programmed to detect tick levels?
I guess I have just missed this before now.

Attached is an image.
The numbers above/below the swings are price levels from one swing to the next
