Lightroom iOS - not all photos auto-adding to LR

Auto add photos and videos is selected.

Comparing the number of photos and videos shows that not all photos / videos are present on iOS Lightroom app (apple photos has 708 files, Lightroom has 546)

Opening the camera roll from within Lightroom on iOS shows the files without a Lightroom icon and hence not synced to Lightroom. There doesn't seem to be a pattern, these files appear in patches throughout.

Clicking the cloud icon in Lightroom shows (incorrectly) that Lightroom sync is up to date, but if i add all photos from my camera roll, Lightroom then sees the missing photos and tries to add them. This has about an 80% success rate, and i have to run this a few times to get all my photos added.

Have you spotted any kind of pattern? Is iOS Settings > Camera > Formats set to Most Compatible or High Efficiency?
