But you tune it so that when the driver has full throttle it makes all the power that is available. When not full throttle you tune for economy. Surely this is not hard to understand.
Nobody detunes an engine at full throttle for economy as that is also pretty bad for the engine. this is something I can never understand when people say that.......

Well, that's what you and I know.
