[MK7 KMP Research] How POTI Section (Routes) work

Miles Ermiiworth So yeah, I've been researching POTI MK7 section (Routes) for the whole evening and it turns out it works differently from the other sections.
POTI is also different from Route's section datas of other Mario Kart games: in MKDS we had PATH (Routes sections) and POIT (Route points) and pretty much the same on MKWii.
On the other hand, on MK7, they decided to combine these two sections into one.

Let's take a look at POTI's header:

Unlike the other section where only amount of points was available, here we have 2 different values that first confused me, Number of route's sections and total amount of points.

To understand more, let's take a look at this image:

The red rectangle is the header of the Route section, that contains the settings and the amount of points of the route's section.

Finally, let's take a look at each point:

Please, don't steal this documentation. I'll try to note this down on the wiki soon.
