Overshields and reduced max shield gear

Quick question for my granite compadres. (tl;dr does reduced max shield strength affect ovevrshield?)

I’ve been trying to learn to Boldur. I’m using a zero cost piece of attack speed gear that lowers max shield strength. When I boldurdash, my overshield will show a reduced amount, then increase to the normal 225 after a few seconds. I am having difficulty telling in the thick of combat if this is just a display issue or if this gear is actually decreasing my overshield.

Any assistance understanding this would be appreciated.

Display issue.
