Default Preliminary and non preliminary?

Hi Everyone

IMG here, done with exams, pending Step 2CS results, starting my task of listing residency characteristics and stuff for IM in order to apply on sep/2016.
On Freida there are 423 programs for IM, but when I filtered by "offer preliminary" ( Since I don't have one), the result comes to 261 Programs.

1. Does it mean there are -2 year- categorical programs in IM?
2.Some listed programs on the "423" list, say GME not required and offer preliminary year, yes. Then why aren't those listed on the 261?

is this a Freida problem?
should I list all the 423 programs into "my list"?....

Please Help,
