Default Overset mesh basic question - different results on background grid?

courant_numero_uno is on a distinguished road

I am simulating flow over a static cylinder using overset mesh (overPimpleDyMFoam).

The results appear different on the background grid, and it causes a difference in the solution once the flow moves past the overset patch. Do any of you have some suggestions? I am using a small time step (dt = 0.001s), and the kOmegaSST turbulence model. Using leastSquares interpolation Am I not understanding something about the overset grid? The cell size is a similar scale at the overset patch.

See the attached picture for explanation:Screenshot from 2020-02-09 16-27-01.png
