Toolpath Simulation comparison colorization: Definitely not showing blue stock where it should

In the chamfer region below there's about .0024" of stock left over but even putting the tolerance down to .000002" it's still green. Doesn't partially turn blue until tolerance is set to .000001":

Accuracy slider all the way.

You need to turn down your Model Opacity down one notch.

You're saying I need to turn this down?:

Where is this in the toolpath and Setups?

There's no toolpath that mills that area yet. I just wanted to know how much stock was left before I create a toolpath with a really small end mill so I know how many roughing passes I'll need.

 

I thought I uploaded an image, should be anywhere circled in red:

Make the model as opaque as you want there's still stock colored green that should be colored blue lol.

If those chamfers only exist in a separate model that is not defined in the Setup, then I wouldn't expect to see any amount of blue there, since the current simulation model is pointing back to the Setup Model for it's Stock On/Off condition. Am I correct in that is how you have things established?
