Also consider “spring-back”. The wood gets slightly compressed by the blade before getting chopped off (remember those 2-blade face shaver animations?).

A repeated pass will get a second cut on these compressed fibers.

Mitigation of this effect would be sharp blades and of course be sure the head adjustment is truly locked down.
