I studied this last week with monitor mode, tcpdump and wireshark.
When the wireless adapter has been commanded to associate with an
access point on a specific channel, mesh beacons and mesh probe
responses are seen from that adapter on that channel.
This can be verified by scanning.
So in my opinion, you are always going to have your target AP and the
active mesh on the same channel.
The variability of Tim's results are probably determined by the
environment the test is being done in. Take the test back to Haiti
where it failed.
