I still don't get it! What are displayed mates meaning? 3 examples here with 5 piece bases and latest compile:

[D]5k2/8/8/1p5p/1P5P/8/4K3/8 w - - mate in 30, but SF mate in 58
   ::    ::    BK    ::
::    ::    ::    ::    
   ::    ::    ::    ::
:: BP ::    ::    :: BP
   WP    ::    ::    WP
::    ::    ::    ::    
   ::    :: WK ::    ::
::    ::    ::    ::    

[D]R7/4k3/8/8/8/p7/r3p3/4K3 b - - mate in 22, but SF mate in 52
WR ::    ::    ::    ::
::    ::    BK    ::    
   ::    ::    ::    ::
::    ::    ::    ::    
   ::    ::    ::    ::
BP    ::    ::    ::    
BR ::    :: BP ::    ::
::    ::    WK    ::    

[D]1k6/8/1B5p/1R6/6K1/8/8/7r w - - mate in 23, but SF mate in 60
   BK    ::    ::    ::
::    ::    ::    ::    
   WB    ::    ::    BP
:: WR ::    ::    ::    
   ::    ::    :: WK ::
::    ::    ::    ::    
   ::    ::    ::    ::
::    ::    ::    :: BR


Can't engine simply display "mate found", because distance seems to be anything over 50 Question . Are Syzygy bases useless for serious analysis?
