Cleanflight flight modes limitation?

I have my Turnigy 9x (on ER9x firmware) set up to transmit three 2-way switch positions independently on a single AUX channel. The 8 possible combinations each occupy a small isolated range (100 units within the 1000-2000 range) on the Cleanflight Modes menu. For example, RUD switch turns on Blackbox when turned on by itself or in any combination with the other 2 switches (ELE, GEA).

So far so good. But when I turn on all 3 switches, Blackbox turns *OFF* even while the other 2 modes (turned on by ELE & GEA, respectively) remain ON. On Cleanflight Modes page, the Blackbox marker is clearly under a range that should turn on all 3 modes, but Blackbox (which is the last of the selected modes on the Modes page) turns off for some reason. When only 1 other switch (either ELE or GEA) is turned ON, toggling RUD works fine (Blackbox mode toggles in response).

Is this a known limitation of Cleanflight, where 3 modes cannot be turned on simultaneously via one AUX channel? And it is the bottom one on the Modes page that always fails? Has anyone run into similar issues (or can check)?

Didn't make much headway on getting all 3 switches to work independently (all 8 possible combinations) on a single aux channel, hence dumbed it down to 6 combinations (which works). The key was to get rid of the fourth "slot ID" for any flight mode which would be required to allow the original plan to work.

Still not sure if this is a Cleanflight limitation or of my Turnigy 9X.

These are my new flight mode settings on CLI:
aux 0 25 0 945 1095
aux 1 25 0 1145 1295
aux 2 25 0 1295 1445
aux 3 5 0 1145 1295
aux 4 5 0 1595 1745
aux 5 9 0 1295 1445
aux 6 9 0 1745 1895

And these were the old settings that did not work:
aux 0 25 0 970 1070
aux 1 25 0 1070 1170
aux 2 25 0 1220 1320
aux 3 25 0 1320 1420
aux 4 5 0 1520 1620
aux 5 5 0 1070 1170
aux 6 5 0 1770 1870
aux 7 5 0 1320 1420
aux 8 9 0 1670 1770
aux 9 9 0 1220 1320
aux 10 9 0 1770 1870
aux 11 9 0 1320 1420
