Recolor Artwork -- criteria for 'reducing' the number of colors

This may sound like a silly question but I need to ask, to avoid getting egg on my face...

In the attached screen capture :

Teintes.jpg

The result of selecting 4 colors on output is shown. 

Initially, I created 18 objects (circles) that fell into four "families", according to their Tints, as you can see in the Munsell Hue circle on the left. The Munsell colors assigned to each of these circles varied a little. Slight differences between each ones. 

My hypothesis is that the reduction is operated on a tint basis, in that the command is programmed to group colors by degree of tint similarities which makes perfect sense to me.

My question, is there any other "criteria" that can be used to operate the reduction other than tints?

It may seem like a silly question but I confess I have not found a preference or menu option to that effect.

Thank you so much for your kind and patient help in advance 🙂

Your screen capture is taken in Illustrator. Why don't you ask in the Illustrator forum, not the InDesign forum?
