If in the color pane in tint slider view a tint color becomes added as swatch – than the sliders & values of that swatch don't show its real value but the value of the former 100% tint.
Or shorter: sliders ignore tints, the tint slider excepted. In any slider type / color system.

For instance: 50% tint of 100 C + 50 Y shows in the sliders 100 C + 50 Y,  whereas its real values are 50 C + 25 Y.

That means you can't know for shure the values of a swatch which got created as tint. Neither its name nor its slider values appear as realiable.

Related issues:
• if you hit the swatch name and, in the pop-up window, hit the pipette symbol or the tiny color circle besides the sliders pulldown menu  – than the color changes to the sliders values and the created tint is lost and overwritten by the 100% of the former color.
• if you define the origin color as global color the dependency gets lost as soon you create a tint: Changing the origin color does not affect its child, the tint. A tint of a color, even of a global, appears not to be related to its mother.
