The fitting was served by a dimmer - as this was under loaded I was
getting flickering so I bought a V-PRO LED Dimmer Module.

I was annoyed to find that the brightness when set at full on is
slightly reduced.

There is an insertion loss with any dimmer. On tungsten too.

But why can't it be set up so that when the potentiometer is full on - the
dimmer circuitry is bypassed?

Still has to go thru a switch of some kind to do that and only
a relay would have no insertion loss. And you would get an
odd increase in brightness as you go to full brightness.
