Can anyone suggest an interpretation of the following results using stringtie --merge: ?

Three stringtie assemblies with 29747, 30865, and 29863 transcripts are merged using stringtie --merge and the resulting gtf has only 25130 transcripts.

Am I losing information? I do not know the internal workings of stringtie --merge but I intuitively expect to have no fewer transcripts than the input assembly with the fewest transcripts.

Thanks!!
Matt
