Without really checking your arguments, there is a fundamental reason why the scaling could be fine, but it is still not strange at all. The point is that you estimate with additive precision, but your fidelity could be exponentially small. E.g. if the fidelity is $10^{-8}$, you need a much smaller error to resolve that compare to a fidelity of, say, 1/2. ...
