Release is not governed by the dot. Release is adjusted by the spring tension.

The Dot on the cleat shows the wide vs. narrow position. (both dots outside, both dots inside depending on which cleat you put on which shoe...you can see by looking at the brass cleat orientation to the bolts.).

Not sure this is true on the older red Impact cleats. The dot designated a 17 degree or a 13 degree release point. On the back side of the cleat close to the front, shows a diagram of which is which. If the dot on the brass cleat is on the outside of the shoe, then the cleat is set up for a 13 degree release.
