Olympia – HSK Shuttle

Something we’ve only just noticed on carriage maps of District Line trains is the way that the shuttle service is shown between Olympia and High Street Ken.

Obviously trains to/from Olympia are very infrequent and are thus shown as a dotted line, but why then does the in carriage map show the ‘shuttle’ service as being a solid line to High Street Ken?

Yes, there are regular Wimbledon to Edgware Road services (as well as the Circle) which makes this a non-restricted service, but following the logic of the carriage map here, it’s clearly showing a shuttle service between Olympia and HSK, in which case shouldn’t the green line between Earl’s Court and HSK also be a dotted line instead of a solid one?
