Homelink Distance Settings not working.

Hello, I live in a normal suburban neighborhood with a 20 foot driveway. I pull straight into my garage to park, I do not reverse in. The auto-open and close settings work, but the Homelink completely ignores the distance settings that I put in the Homelink settings on the Tesla. Basically, wherever I “reset the location” to, it uses that exact GPS spot to auto/open close the garage, no matter whether I’ve set the distance to 20ft, or 100ft. I set the location by pointing the car at the garage door while the vehicle is in Drive, and not moving.

I have a dumb garage door with no other apps used to control it. In my phone, location access for the Tesla app is set to always. Driving a 2021 Vision-only Model Y.

Any ideas how to fix this issue?
