[Digital] Does reshuffle work with location deck?

I've noticed one thing when playing. In most cases if I fail to defeat a bane, the location deck is reshuffled, however this undefeated bane is the top card.


This does not happen always, but definitely more often than it should? Probably 5 cards left on average, so I should re-encounter the same bane in 20% of cases. But it seems to happen 80% of times.


Did anyone else notice this?

There Are some bugs with some hensmans and some summoned monsters that can cause this effect. But in general I have not met this problem outside of those situations.
Narrow down if the effect is with special henmans or more common.

I've occasionally felt the same way, and it certainly wouldn't be the first time it came up on these forums.  But I can't really come up with a working theory besides humans having a terrible perception bias.
By all analysis, the shuffling RNG is fair in its implementation, and works properly when the game uses it.  Though, I sometimes wonder if there are situations where the game inadvertently does a "Shuffle Under Top" (like after a successful Augury), when the rules should dictate a "Shuffle Everything" kind of shuffle.
I'm just guessing, but the problem (if there is a problem) is likely not so much a matter of randomness, it is that the game appears to have different shuffles for different situations, and possibly a card bug or UI glitch is affecting the implementation.
