Accuracy value shown in modal isn't the same as on observation page

I don’t know if this was already discussed or if this is somehow intentional, but the accuracy value displayed on the identify modal isn’t always the same as the one shown on the observation page. The value shown in the modal is the actual accuracy value entered by the user, while the one on the observation page seems to be the larger of either the user-entered value or the size of the obscuring rectangle. This is true regardless of whether the user chose to obscure or the observation is obscured due to the taxon geoprivacy.

Below are one plant and one mammal observation from the same county – the obscuring rectangle size is 28.36 km, but that’s only visible in the observation with a small acc value.

While it’s nice to be able to see the user-entered accuracy value somewhere, it seems to me that a higher priority is to display the accuracy value that matches the displayed rectangle. Thus, in these examples, 28.36 km should be the value displayed in all four places. And maybe the user entered value can be displayed somewhere else? Alternatively, increase the size of the obscuring rectangle on observations where the accuracy value is larger than the the obscuring rectangle.

I think the larger of the two values should always be displayed. That goes for the map too: if the circle is larger than the rectangle, then the circle should be shown there, not the rectangle.
