Forget the term brewhouse efficiency. Both How to Brew and Designing Great Beers mention nothing about this. Instead they both use the term "extract efficiency" to mean the amount of good stuff you extract from the grain bed, stated as a percentage of the max it would be possible to extract. It is not the first runnings or the sparge, it is the total amount in the kettle after all that has been completed.

Anything that factors in a higher or lower volume than planned has nothing to do with efficiency. It has to do with effectiveness.

If you noticed after your post the OP said "ok so preboil volume equals brewhouse efficiency". That's not correct. I was trying to help him understand. I wasn't agreeing or disagreeing with your "washing the balls" analogy. But anyway, points for style.
