Can you please clarify the question? What do you mean "up to lvl3"?

Let me try with an example: if you index two documents, one with category
[l1, l2, l3] and one with [l1, l2], and you ask to count "l1", you will get
2. If you ask to count [l1, l2, l3] you will get 1, as only one document is
associated with that node. If you index a third document with category [l1,
l2, l3, l4] and ask to count [l1, l2, l3], you will get 2. Does that answer
your question?

Perhaps I didn't understand your question, so if you have a concrete example
of few docs, query and expected results, I'll be able to provide a better
