How exactly does the calculator on the skilling pet calculator work?

For example, I've been trying to figure out the best pet% for Ralph to 120. Above the calculator, it states that Thieving is a time-based method unaffected by xp/tick. However, when using it, entering the xp value for a safecrack yields a much higher chance than Prif pickpocketing (~0.7% vs. ~0.04%). Not entering an xp value is not possible.

Does "xp-based" mean it considers total XP gained or xp/action? Are high-xp/tick actions such as safecracking the best method for time-based skills? (This is what the calculator seems to tell you) Sorry if this I'm missing the very obvious answer here.

Any help would be much appreciated! Cheers
