"Short Game" strokes gained when chipping vs putting from off the green

I have had the pro version of this app for several months and have used it for 30+ rounds. I have been impressed with the stat tracking. My questions are concerning the "short game" strokes gained statistic, as well as what is considered a "chip" when calculating "putts after a chip". 


Most holes I will miss the green on my approach shot. If I hit a chip shot, I obviously will select "track shot" and then select CH for club type. If I am on the fringe or just in the fairway or rough, I will often use my putter. I press "track shot" - I select "putter" - and then select the lie of the shot (fringe, fairway, or rough). The app correctly does not label these shots as a "putt" for recorded putting statistics. 


1. Is a putter shot from off the green considered a "chip"? (ie contribute to the "average putts after chip" statistic?) Or must I select the "chipper" club type for it to be considered a "chip"?


2. How does the "short game strokes gained" statistic work? Does it consider all types of short shots (putts, chips, short pitch/flop) after a missed green on approach


3. How does the algo determine the quality of a short shot (or the following putt(s) for that matter)?


Thanks in advance!
