Does the position of the friction point on a clutch have anything to do with how worn it is? In other words, is a high friction point the sign of a dying clutch (even if it's perfectly grippy)?

I've heard conflicting things on this and wanted to know.

The friction point is determined by the clutch cable adjustor (for cable systems), or the adjustment mech on the slave cylinder (for hydraulic).

If there is an auto adjust, the friction point will remain approximately the same.

On a manual adjust, as the clutch wears the friction point will raise slightly. I don't know exactly by how much, hopefully someone else here knows more.

Makes me almost curious enough to go look at my as of yet uninstalled clutch kit to get some idea of how 'levered' the pressure plate is. But even that might not be a good indicator, as the lever fingers bend a bit when pressed.
