Clan loyalty ratings in FM:3085 and FM:3145

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere but if so I couldn't find it.

Loyalty ratings for Clan units in FMs Crusader Clans, Warden Clans and Updates were about their allegiance to the Crusader and Warden causes. Given that both ideologies were no longer burning issues after the Wars of Reaving, what do the loyalty ratings in FM 3085 and 3145 represent?

Are they simply about how aligned the unit is with its Clan's leadership, or does it differ between Clans? e.g. for the Falcons loyalty rating would represent adherence to the Mongol Doctrine, for the Bears it is how 'traditional' or Freeminder a unit is, etc.
All Clan totems are equal but some are more equal than others

"They do not understand that defacing or destroying a monument does not change history. In fact, it often ends up reinforcing that history. Rewriting the history books to impose a new social order rarely works in the long term."

Loyalty ratings reflect the perceived loyalty of a unit to central command.
The solution is just ignore Paul.
