How does the display particle tracks work?

The case i am working on is particles carried by a flow in a pipe.

I wanted to know how is calculated the number of particles escaped through the outlet of the pipe briefly and why this number change when i click on display... What would be the correct value of escaped particles?
Is this number of particles calculated with a probability rule?

There must be probabilities somewhere...

Thanks for your help

Yes. In some cases there is probability in the particle trajectory is calculation, depending on the injection type and settings used. But sum of all the particle fate should equal to the particle number injected.
