My working theory is that it is not, and that the smaller calibers were more commonly close shots, like contact distance or nearly so.
That could very well be. That is another variable that really has nothing to do with terminal effect but that could have a very significant effect on the overall outcome.

The point is that typically when people talk about "caliber difference" they want to focus exclusively on terminal effect from one bullet size vs. a different bullet size. There are lots of other differences which can be shown to be very significant from a practical perspective, but most of the time people studiously ignore all of those differences choosing instead to study the one difference that has an effect that is nearly impossible to nail down in real-world shootings.
