Default Points confusion

Hi,
As per the link www.immigration.govt.nz/pointsindicator my total points seem to be 115, as I am a computer network engineer I checked both the following as "Yes" "Yes".
Is your work, or offer of employment, in any one of New Zealand's:
identified future growth areas? Y/N
areas of absolute skills shortage? Y/N


But no matter if I say YES or NO my total points do not seem to change they remain 115. So that's a little confusing to me

I have an overseas(outside NZ) bachelors degree in Comp Sc. with 4+ years of experience in both future growth area and areas of absolute skills shortage I am 28.

I'd appreciate if anyone can help me understand this thing.
Cheers

Can you have both skills shortage and future growth? Also do you have employment in NZ, or offer of employment?

That question refers to any job offer or present work you have in NZ. So if you do not have a job offer then you do not gain points
Work experience is a different matter.
