Object Repository Selectors

Hi All, I am exploring 2020.10, and I was wondering if someone could explain best practices/ answer some questions for the new Object Repository especially the new element recorder.

There are three selector options: normal, fuzzy, and image. If I enable all three, which one is being used by the activity? (whichever one is fastest?) or all three being used for redundancy? What are the negatives for using all three especially in terms of performance?

Also most importantly, there’s an option to play with selector accuracy but there’s no information or explanation on real world impact. Are default values ideal? Fuzzy looks to be at .5 and image at .8. I am hoping to use your answers to come up with policy on how we will use these features going forward. I appreciate any details and insight
