Foliage LOD's Screen Size Can't be Set Higher Than 1.5

Found in 4.20 CL# 4369336, 4.21 CL# 4753647, 4.22 CL# 4827620, 5.1 CL 20024840

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open the Editor
  2. Take any static mesh with 2 LODs and set LOD 0 to a screen size above 1.5
  3. Place the static mesh into the scene along with a foliage instance of that same mesh
  4. Set the view to "Mesh LODs"

Steps with Project:

  1. Open attached Project
  2. Set the view to "Mesh LODs"

The static mesh will Change LOD more or less where it is expected but the foliage barely reacts to any numbers after 1-1.5

The foliage would react the same as the instance static mesh
