For stone fruit, it can matter how dormant the rootstock is, in my experience.
The % takes is much higher if the rootstock is breaking dormancy and the scion is completely dormant. As you saw, the rootstock can even be vigorously growing.
For pome fruits, state of rootstock dormancy really doesn't seem to matter.
