The difference between 10.25 and 10.5 is very small I am surprised such a tiny tiny adjustment would or could make that much difference? I find the difference between say 18 and 19 is from 3-4 seconds on the pour for the same weight of espresso out. I am not sure you would see very much difference going from 18.0 to 18.25, perhaps a second or less, but it would be very difficult to make such a small adjustment.
I would recommend undoing the top ring and checking the outer burr is moving freely up and down, but even then I can't really guess at what's going on to give such a huge difference in the espresso extracted.
Any chance of a Video showing the two grind settings, your adjustments and grinding/extraction so we can see what's happening
