Issue with interval kanji

Shouldn’t the “Interval” Radical be at level 8 with the Interval Kanji? I found it at level 33 which seems strange to me. dont you have to guru the radicals before a kanji can be unlocked???

No, sometimes kanji reappear at later levels as radicals for more complex kanji. That would be one such case.

Another example from my current level is 分 which is a level 3 kanji but is a level 14 radical where it is a radical more complex kanji like 雰.

Also just to further add, if you look at this page:

When the ‘interval’ kanji is introduced, its radicals are gate and sun. That’s why its precursor radical is not itself.

Thank you that helps.
