Yes.

 

That's because DEX is showing you the speed bonus -  but the "breakdown" shows you the actual time reduction this speed bonus leads to.

 

So let's say you have an action time of 10 seconds (just an example) and your speed is 100%.

 

Now you add 24% speed: your action speed raises to 124%. But your action time drops (less seconds needed to finish).

 

But because of some math an increase of 24% speed means a 19% decrease of your action time.

 

There are several terms in Deadfire concerning speed: action speed (see above), action time (see above) and recovery time (like action time, but only recovery).

 

Basically: if a percentage number is given for action time or recovery time it has more impact than the same number applied to action speed. So watch out. ;)

 

I know: it's confusing and could have been displayed better by Obsidian. :)
