S Health doesn't convert steps to walking exercise

I have 25979 steps (fairly accurate estimate for the day) and 1338 calories burned, of which only 6336 steps and 399 calories were counted and exported as exercise. No amount of resyncing, disabling and enabling access makes the remaining 19643 steps count as exercise, and I'm left only with the option of adding a walking exercise manually.

I've walked 19.87 km in total, so the 19643 steps account for 19643/25979 ~= 75.61% of the distance, or 15.02 km. The absolute lowest amount of calories expended I can get for 15.02 km is above 1400, if I set the duration to 5 seconds, only going up if the duration is increased, which makes ZERO SENSE - YOU BURN MORE ENERGY IF YOU WALK FASTER, NOT LESS, which the app correctly forbids you to submit. Can you maybe add a way to sync walking to walking exercise manually instead of fudging it with nonsensical manual exercise records? I wouldn't mind this so much if MFP read from the walking stat, and not the exercise stat that contains an erroneous count of calories burned and steps taken.

Unless you actually start the exercise it won't record any steps towards exercise.

There's a super duper secret toggle named "auto-detect workout" hidden very well in the immediate view upon opening Settings in S Health, that is toggled on for me. Also, I don't know whether you've read the entire post, but a part of my walking has already been recorded as exercise, with the timestamps in Health Connect data matching well.

All I've asked was whether it's possible to force S Health to convert  the walking data it already has into an exercise with the same distance walked/steps taken/calories burned it already has.

I know there is the auto option, but it doesn't always pickup and log correctly and only picks up after 10 minutes at the earliest.

If steps aren't picked up as a workout/exercise automatically, how can it decipher which steps to count.
