Physical pad range is irrelevant for emulation. Amiga max analog joystick/paddle value is max number of scanlines - 8. (But full range is not used and can't be used, it would break even more games)

Amiga analog joystick is (was) really analog. There is 2xvariable resistor in joystick (with unknown value and unknown range), there is 2xcapacitor for each joystick on Amiga mainboard and comparators and counters inside Paula.

There has to be some kind of standard for analog sticks or games without calibration would not have worked. It is also possible there was multiple different joysticks setups that only worked with some games.

Whatever F1GP shows are not (can't be) Paula counter values. JetPilot calibration screen seems to show real "physical" counter values.
