That makes me scratch my head. The grain focusing magnifier is reputed to 
magnify the negative so that all you see is grain. If  the grain is in 
focus, then the print will be as well in focus as possible, or as in-focus 
as the original.

I still do all my b&w in my own wet darkroom, and use one of two grain focus 
magnifiers (short or tall), and I see what should be grain. At least there 
are black bits of stuff I see that are in addition to the stuff floating 
around in my eyeball.

There is a difference in what is seen both between films and at different 
sizes, so it surely must be the grain, or clumps thereof. If that's not the 
actual grain, what is it?
