As Mona hinted, it does rather the opposite: it increases the loop gain of the regulator in AC.
I had to drop it in the final version: it interfered with the ON/OFF circuit

Here's a clever (no range switch) compact job from long ago.
A neat shortcut indeed, but I wanted to reuse as much as possible the (linear) scales of the salvaged galvanometer, and anyway I preferred explicit controls of the sensitivity and integration time for this one

To elaborate, 75% of the nominal voltage means 75% of the power for an ideal transformer, except of course the transformer has a finite regulation, and the I*R drop will remain the same irrespective of the operating voltage.
At low voltages, the proportion of the losses will become increasingly dominant
