Its not that its determining a certain amount of fluid or not, more so that if you don't hold the spray/ wipe switch forward long enough it won't swipe at all despite spraying fluid until after a certain time delay, where as just energizing the wiper with the toggle switch works right away every single time.

This is the same as the front windshield sprayers, if you don't hold the switch long enough it doesn't actually activate the wipers even though it may have sprayed fluid. That is a common occurence on any car I've ever had.
