My rangefinder has the 35 yard plate at 36 yards from the first bench, which suited me as the 36 yard zero suited the bushnells mark on the ring (36yards).

I bet the 35 yards was measured from the sillies shooting position, I am 99.9% sure this is right. Well start again in the morning. I forgot about that one.

And it meant each marker plate was 0.5 to 0.75 yards more than the plate said as distance increased when sat on the 1st bench. I will check tomorrow.
