Is Band Tension Counted in %?

I read that you don’t count chains in the percentage because it is deloaded at the bottom. But what about bands? If 50% of my bench is 200 do I do 200 plus the mini band or 160 plus the mini bands?

They count at the bottom position.

Percentage is always counted with bar weight. There should be Some band tension at the bottom, but not enough to count accurately.
