You are right. But, effective_cache_size will have the impact on the
number of pages_fetched when it's used as parameterized path (i.e
inner side of the nested loop). But for our case where we see the
wrong number of pages got estimated (Q10), it was for the
non-parameterized path.  However, I have also tested with high
effective cache size but did not observe any change.

That too when loop count > 1.  If loop_count =1 then seems like it
doesn't consider the effective_cache size. But, actually, multiple
tuples can fall into the same page.
