I can only guess both "40% and 80%" are not correct:
overlap is an esitmation. It can be larger or smaller than the actual, physical coupling coefficient.

For EME, I am not sure how many number of modes you used and what is the structure of the waveguide. We have an online example:

You may need to do converge test, with sufficient cells and mode numbers. Of course, if there is no strucutre change, only one cell is sufficient.
