Is it possible to account for daylight dimming if using the lighting power density approach?

I have a project where the LPD has been specified equal to the allowance, the lighting is 100% controlled to a lux setpoint for each zone with daylit area (primary and secondary). I would expect the energy results to be close to the Standard model, but it's 34% WORSE.

The project has 100% dimmable LEDs with daylighting everywhere possible, and I'd like to take credit for that without having to specify every fixture in my simplified model.
