Foot Reef?

I have two reef points on my main. One appears to be a foot reef that reduces sail area slightly the other reduces the sail by 1/4. My question is when the foot reef is in place should''nt this remove a large amount of the belly of the sail rendering it flatter for sailing in higher wind. When I put a foot reef in I have just as much belly to the sail as without the foot reef. Could this be due to a blown out main?
